Product Details


Durand and Fucile are a winning combination, and their father/son bonding will leave readers in stitches. Loads of fun with a lot of heart.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Fucile’s exuberant illustrations pop on every page and the ratio of word to illustration is very balanced. The story is played for laughs, but, in the process, readers will enjoy the father/son relationship and subtlely learning about being a sport.
—School Library Journal

Mitchell’s energy remains second to none.
—Publishers Weekly

[E]nough to make any young reader want to hit the lanes… Set within illustrations that take advantage of multiple extreme angles, Fucile’s scraggly characters have a contagious manic energy, with Mitchell occasionally breaking into Looney Tunes–style running-in-place.
—Booklist Online

[A]n irresistible picture book about a high-energy kid’s outing with his super-competitive dad. It’s hard to say which of Tony Fucile’s illustrations jumps off the page more: the high-five on "Battle on!" or the celebratory "triple steamin’-hot-potato dance, with salsa."

[F]resh, charming with witty and very current humor sensibility and descriptions… [A] perfect strike!
—International House of Geek (blog)
