The All-Star Joker
The stars are out in Kansas City . . . the baseball
stars, that is! Mike and Kate are at the All-Star game, and even get to
go on the field during the Home Run Derby to catch pop-ups! That’s
where they meet Andy, whose dad, Josh Robinson, is an All-Star catcher.
But before the Home Derby ends, Josh finds himself in hot water. Someone
is playing practical jokes on the other players, and the coach is sure
it’s him. Andy swears his dad is innocent. Who would want to frame Josh?
The Wrigley Riddle
Named by Amazon.com as “One of the Best Books of the Year 2013”
walls—they’re the most famous part of the Chicago Cubs’ historic
ballpark, Wrigley Field. Mike and Kate can’t wait to get down on the
field to see the ivy for themselves. But when they do, they’re horrified
to discover patches of the ivy have been ripped away! Who would want to
sabotage the stadium? Is it someone trying to curse the Cubs? Or is the
rumor of a treasure hidden under the ivy tempting greedy fans? The Wrigley Riddle includes a fun fact page about Chicago’s Wrigley Field.
