Who’s on first. What’s on second. I Don’t Know’s on third. I illustrated this comic/picture book adaptation of Abbott & Costello’s classic routine.
The book is stunning—dad and Bud would be proud!!
Martz's expressive characters cavort on backgrounds that pop with appealing color. Clever page formatting conveys the pacing that is such an integral part of the laughs.
Confusion reigns as the banter between coach and catcher gets sillier and sillier with each new question and answer. The supercute cartoon illustrations, arranged in both panels and strips against solid backgrounds, only intensify the zaniness.
Martz’s clever graphics make the premise clear to the youngest readers...Parents can now introduce the routine earlier than has been traditional for young fans and, as we all know, participating in tradition is the essence of the love of baseball.
...be prepared to turn the pages—fast.
