"Strike Three!" Danny can't ever hit the ball. Once, just once, he'd like to swing his bat and connect. Then, one night, Danny finds himself floating out his window to play baseball with the All-Stars -- Orion, Dipper, the Gemini twins, Rigel, and the rest. Their opponents -- the Orbits -- are truly intimidating, especially the mean pitcher Moon. Danny's afraid he'll strike out again. But maybe an out-of-this-world game can teach him the secret to becoming the batter of his dreams. A boy finds the confidence he needs in this dramatic fantasy. The poetic text by award-winning author Jane Yolen is both suspenseful and soothing. And imaginative art in every shade of nighttime blue makes "Moon Ball" a deliciously dreamy bedtime book.
