Description


Let's put our hands together Now batting for Mudville . . . Casey

America has been waiting for this mighty ballplayer to step up to the plate and right his wrong that left Mudville in a state of gloom. Now, in this humorous, seam-splitting sequel to Ernest Lawrence Thayer's "Casey at the Bat: A Ballad of the Republic," award-winning author Dan Gutman offers Casey what any failed sports hero most desires--a second chance.

Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher bring fans the tense excitement of a thrilling game with their fabulous art and inventive design. All eyes will be on Casey as he comes back to bat. . . .

Will he finally bring joy to Mudville?
