Review

A moving tale of baseball, magic, and former rivals who come together to solve a problem.

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

Baseball provides energetic context to this story in alternating voices of friends in a lovingly drawn and diverse community. Add magic, numbers, Shakespeare, and lashings of mystery, all seasoned with artful sprinkles of culinary flavor and equal parts humor and heart. Cleverly adjacent to the world of Midsummer's Mayhem, yet standing wonderfully well alone.

-- "Uma Krishnaswami, author of Threads of Peace"

It's no mystery why Rajani LaRocca's Much Ado About Baseball is a home run. Like the smell of freshly cut infield grass, this fast-paced story of friendship, fitting in, and finding yourself is filled with magic and math. It pops with baseball excitement and summer days full of possibilities.

-- "David A. Kelly, author of the Ballpark Mysteries series" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!
Reviewed in the United States on 7 September 2021
I’m loving these stories so much! I am so impressed with how, so far, all MG books that include sports still make it to where I still love the story. I don’t care for baseball 1 way or another, but I loved it in here. I was on the edge of my seat for THE BASEBALL GAMES as well as the other amazing parts of the story. That’s saying something. MG authors know what they’re doing lol Also, math is my LEAST favorite subject, but I LOVE puzzles/riddles. This is full of math puzzles/riddles & I really enjoyed that too! So good!

There’s also something special about these with how they are like a Shakespeare/mythology like feel/fairies/modern day twist of awesomeness. If that makes any sense lol And again, so many amazing messages & life lessons. Messages on rivalries, misunderstandings, teamwork, friendship, family, doing what’s right, being true to yourself, being honest with your loved ones, grief, enduring, girl power, & even how relocating & changing schools can be so hard for a kid.

There are just so many parts that make up the whole of these books that make them so great. The characters are always so amazing too. Abhi was the BEST best friend. Absolutely loved him. We have a doggy though-Fib. That is 1 special dog. He has my heart. And that scene toward the end with him & another character?! All the feels. Big book hug time for sure. Book 1 was full of sweet treats, & this 1 is full of salty treats. So creative how it’s all broken down, & all the details-even the meaning of Fib’s name. I had no idea about any of that, & I immediately did research lol Like the 1st book, there are recipes in the back-salty treat recipes this time. There are also mathematical concepts, puzzles, etc! Love it! Highly recommend! I don’t know if this will just be a duology, or if there will be more-but I would love more! SUCH A BEAUTIFUL cover with beautiful illustrations sprinkled throughout by Chloe Dijon too!💜
