KIRKUS REVIEW

Joe, Tank, Tony, and Baker have a good ballgame going on Pine Street: home plate's a garbage-can lid, each team's allowed only one out, and the younger kids chase the fly balls--but now Joe's little brother Flea wants to bat and won't take no for an answer. Since he's sure to be an easy out, Tony and Tank are eager to let him try. But anything's possible in street ball: Flea's squibber ends up a triple home run. The easy text and simple line drawings (with much of the dialogue in balloons) are nicely integrated to tell a funny story.
