Product Details


“Casey Stengel is an inspired choice for this third of Winter’s ‘You Never Heard of …’ biographies of baseball greats, each illustrated by a different artist.   Blitt and Winter have teamed up before on picture books about the Founding Fathers, and here their sensibilities once more mesh brilliantly.”   —The New York Times Book Review

“The faded watercolors and scratchy lines of Barry Blitt’s illustrations give a feeling of historical distance to this entertaining account of Stengel’s career.”   —The Wall Street Journal

“From the portraits onthe endpapers to the Stengelese quips in the text, here’s a first-rate picture book for baseball fans.” —Booklist starred review

“Blitt infuses his artwork with physical humor, and as readers follow Stengel through his highs, lows, and head-scratching in-betweens (like forgetting to put on pants before taking the field), they’ll agree that ‘They just don’t make ’em like Casey Stengel anymore.’ “ —Publishers Weekly starred review

“This engaging title will have kids sprinting toward sports biographies to learn more about the many legendary players Stengel played ball with or managed.”  —School Library Journal starred review
