KIRKUS REVIEW

Right field is the place the slowest and worst players are sent. It's a place for daydreaming about future home runs and great plays while the real game goes on in the distance. If a ball happens to be sent that way--watch out! The newly alert youngster in this book learns that there will be no more lolling in the grass for him. An awkward rhyme scheme relegates this book to the minor leagues; despite Simont's peppy illustrations, filled with childhood longing, it's too much like right field. There simply isn't much going on. (Picture book. 3-7)
