Praise

Praise for The Greatest Game Ever Played:

“An intriguing balance of realism and caricature, his artwork scores a win, especially with its evocations of the ingenuous protagonist’s profound emotions.”—Publishers Weekly

“Weaves the touching story of a son’s reluctance to give up his time with his father and his father’s rediscovery of the joys of sharing this sport with his son. The marvelous illustrations are a study in expressions and mannerisms right down to the steam coming from breaths in the cold air. A great book for fathers to share with their kids.”—Children’s Literature

“This is an engaging tale, well told, and a warm portrayal of the bond between sports-loving fathers and sons.”—School Library Journal

” Readers will enjoy the period detail, the recognizable-but-even-larger-than-life football heroes on the field and the reminder that shared pleasures are best.”—Kirkus Reviews

“The energy of the paintings perfectly matches Bildner’s lively text, which brings to light some great football history to share across generations.”—Booklist
