Review: Jim & Me (Baseball Card Adventures #8)

User Review  - Liz - Goodreads

This is my least favorite of the baseball card adventures so far. It's not terrible. I still love the baseball premise and historical aspect of this series. But this one got a little heavy. Depression and alcoholism and steroid use. All parts of the Jim Thorpe story, but not terribly kid-friendly. Read full review

About the author (2008)

Dan Gutman has always been a baseball fanatic. He played in Little League as a kid, and one of the first magazine articles he ever sold explained the science behind the spitball, the scuffball, and corked bats. When he thought about the T206 Honus Wagner—the most valuable baseball card in the world—he began to write honus & me, his first Baseball Card Adventure. That book introduced Joe Stoshack—Stosh—a kid who can use baseball cards to travel through time and meet the game’s greatest players. Stosh has since gone on many amazing, fast-paced adventures, most recently to try to save Roberto Clemente.
