It is springtime in Pleasant Valley, home of Albert the duck, the hero of several previous books by Leslie Tryon, including Albert's Thanksgiving and Alberts Alphabet. What is the industrious Albert involved in this time?
Springtime is the opening season for America's favorite pastime. It's time to play ball, and Albert turns his energies to coaching the local team. There are beanballs and knuckleballs, fly balls and foul balls and maybe even a home run in a game full of the joys and mishaps that all such games entail. Leslie Tryon's artwork is full of Spring Valley's familiar friends as well as heartwarming detail that places the reader smack in the middle of the park. An outing to be cherished.

Leslie Tryon is the author of the Albert books and several others for young readers. She is also the illustrator of Alma Flor Ada's Dear Peter Rabbit and With Love, Little Red Hen. She lives in Carmel Valley, California.
