MATT’S MITT

illus. By Hilary Knight

Doubleday

Published separately and together with different illustrators, these tall tales tell the story of two fantastic ballplayers.

Matt has a mitt that can catch balls even if his hand isn’t inside of it. His daughter, Florence, is so swift that she can make four outs, and is the terror of all opposing teams.


About MATT’S MITT, the New York Times wrote,

“This is one book that won’t gather dust on the shelf.”

About FLEET FOOTED FLORENCE, the Horn Book said

“… a tall-tale complete with slapstick, wild humor and a larger than life heroine.”
