Ludlow Grebe has an overactive imagination: he's sure there are monsters in the closet and sharks in the rainwater.Then Ludlow's parents decide to sign him up with a local Little League team, the Oswald City Hornets. Ludlow's told to play "far, far back," so far back, in fact, that he ends up in ANOTHER field where monsters are in the crowd and insects are on the field. Ludlow even pinch-hits a home run for the beetle baseballers! With his wildly imaginative story and delightfully bizarre illustrations, Mark Teague hits this hilarious baseball tale right out of the park.
