Oliver Hall loves baseball. He loves the ritual of helping out in his grandfatherís store, Hallís Nostalgia, and he loves listening to Grandpa Hallís innumerable baseball stories. But one day, Oliver makes a startling discovery. It seems his grandfather has kept one very special story a secret: his own. With stunning black-and-white and sepia-tone illustrations and a heartwarming narrative, Matt Tavares portrays one manís lifelong love of the game, and the enduring legacy he passes on to his grandchild.
Author-illustrator Matt Tavares hits the ball out of the park with a luminously illustrated tale about the joy of baseball, generational bonds, and the immutable power of dreams.
