Return of the Homerun Kid
By: Matt Christopher
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company
Sylvester Coddmyer III was a great baseball player last season and was hitting homeruns every at bat. When he came the next year, he had a huge slump. Then when he was walking home from a baseball game, he ran into an ex-ballplayer named Cheeko. Cheeko gave Sylvester a lot of help for hitting a baseball, throwing a baseball, and fielding a baseball.
Sylvester is a boy that loves baseball. He is a really great batter but he gets in slumps sometimes.
One thing I like best about this book is it’s a baseball book and my favorite sport is baseball. I also like this book because it was interesting and fun to read. Something else I like about this book is that it told what happened when his team, the Redbirds, was playing.
I would recommend this book to people who like reading baseball books.
