I thought Michael Verrett’s book Joy! Joy! Baseball was pretty cute and a very easy read. This book is made up of 36 cartoons that are all about baseball. All the drawings were done by Verrett and are his own creation.
The majority of the cartoons in Joy! Joy! Baseball are about little league games. If you have ever attended a little league game or have been a parent to a little leaguer then you cannot help but see the funny side of Verrett’s cartoons. The cartoon on page 15 is one that every mother of a little leaguer can relate too. It is about a mom watching her child’s game. The cartoon on page 34 about the little brother singing actually reminded me of something my mother would do at a game. She often sings a similar song when watching major league baseball. My favorite cartoon in the book was on page 26. It is about a kid who learned the hard way to call it out when he was going to catch the ball. This brought back memories of when my brother played in little league. You do not have to like baseball to enjoy these cartoons but it certainly does help.
Verrett has once again brought a smile to my face with his words. This happens to be the third book of Verrett’s that I have read and enjoyed. Verrett has written several other books that are mostly for children. All his books I have read so far are suitable for all ages. This book would make a great gift for a little league coach.
