    I'm not usually a David Shannon fan, but this was a great story with cool illustrations (not in the No David! style). I love the idea that without baseball spring never comes.

    Boss Swaggert's baseball career started at a high. He loved the crowd chanting and yelling in the ballpark. However, this started to change when his career went downhill. He was in a slump and one last strike out with the bases loaded is how he ended his career. He became a successful rich man (obviously not through baseball), but grew to hate the game due to his lack of skill. He became a very powerful man who ruled the town. He made ballparks into factories and made everyone work. He made sure [...]

    How Georgie Radbourn Saved Baseball is a story about a young boy who spoke only of baseball sayings. This was a problem because baseball was forbidden in his town by Boss Swaggert, which since baseball has been forbidden, the only season has been winter. When Boss heard the news of Georgie talking these baseball sayings, they decided to make a bet. If Georgie could strike him out then baseball would be legal again and Georgie would be free, but if Boss gets a hit, then baseball stays forbidden a [...]

    It was winter in America, but there is no surprise here. It was always winter in America. There was no spring, autumn, or even summer. Boss Swaggert was what they called him. He was a wealthy man with a lot of control. He got rid of baseball fields and put up factories. No one was to play baseball nor even speak baseball. America was cold and snowy all the time. One day, a little boy by the name of Georgie Radbourn was born. A boy with a passion. He challenged the boss at a game. Georgie, he sho [...]

    Boss Swaggert was a great baseball player, until the year that he was going through a slump and got booed off the field. At this point, Boss decided that baseball was a terrible thing and should be gotten rid of forever. He used his power to persuade politicians to believe him and ultimately got the President arrested for "Conspiracy to Commit Baseball." With Boss Swaggert as the Chief Executive Officer of America, baseball was outlawed completely, and Spring stopped coming in America! When comm [...]

    PB:23 How Georgie Radbourn Saved Baseball. This was a great little story about a country's struggle without baseball and the heartless man who took it away from them. But soon enough, a young boy names Georgie, saves the country and brings back baseball. This is an enjoyable story, especially if you're children or child are into baseball. Baseball was the life for many people back then and it still is very relevant today, which makes this book a must read!

  12. Amanda on said:

    It is hard to imagine an America without springtime, opening day, and baseball, but that is just the images created in this book! The illustrations are excellent, exactly what I would expect from David Shannon. This would be a great book to teach cause and effect, as well as standing up for your rights. The storyline flows well. This read is best suited for upper elementary school students.

  14. Travis Miller on said:

    Georgie lives in a world of only work, where no one can enjoy baseball or really anything. He was talented and wanted to do something about it. He challenges "the man" and beats him which makes his world so much more enjoyable. I would use this book to introduce the idea that even though you are young doesn't mean you cannot do it.

  15. Kristine Hansen on said:

    Cute story, with a little deeper message about how your rights can be taken away by corrupt individuals. The whole thing feels somewhat symbolic and gives me the urge to analyze it complete as an allegory of some kind. Or we can just say it's a kid's book on baseball meant to entertain. But where's the fun in that?

  16. Victoria Binkerd on said:

    David Shannon has done it again! I felt like I was swept back in time as I read this book, trying to imagine how an American could ever take away this country's favorite pastime! Everything about this book was top notch! GO READ IT!

  17. Michael on said:

    This book brought back a lot of my prior knowledge from the movie The Natural and a prior book read. Awesome!!!!

  18. Freda Anderson on said:

    Cute kids book with some anticapitalist undertones centered around a love of baseball. Good illustrations. What's not to love?

    After Boss outlaws baseball in America, spring stops coming--until a young boy beats the tyrant at his own game.

  20. Brenda Kahn on said:

    I thought this title was familiar! It's a reissue of David Shannon's authorial debut - with a new cover - one much more inviting than the original.

  21. Nicole on said:

    Age: K. Great, imaginative story that leads to good questions to ask kids while going through. I quite like his illustrations here too; different style from his other books.

  22. Alyson (Kid Lit Frenzy) on said:

    I know a lot of people enjoy Shannon's Oh No! David series but I think I liked his art style and story-telling in this one better.

  23. Joe on said:

    I was pleasantly surprised by this work of Shannon's. Didn't like the ending, but the rest made up for it. That's usually not the case for me.
