Brothers at Bat

By Audrey Vernick. Illus. by Steven Salerno. Clarion, $16.99 (9780547385570). Gr. 1–3.


This true story introduces the Acerra brothers—all 12 of them—who played on their local baseball team, one after another, and then formed a semipro team. The fantastic retro art is part of the reason this brims with vitality.
