Book Review: Honus & Me by Dan Gutman


Author:  Dan Gutman
Title:  Honus & Me
Publication Info: HarperCollins (1999)
ISBN: 0380788780

Summary/Review: This is another baseball ebook I borrowed from the library to read to my son that I ended up liking more than he did.  The story is the first in a series in which a boy named Joey discovers he can use baseball cards to travel through time and meet famed players.  In this case, it’s Pittsburgh great Honus Wagner who takes Joey to the 1909 World Series and even gets him in the game.  It’s a great fantasy which touches on issues of integrity and honesty.  Wagner comes across just a bit too perfect, but then again all accounts have him as a great guy.   A good read for kids who like sports from around the ages 7 to 11.

Rating: ***1/2

One thought on “Book Review: Honus & Me by Dan Gutman

  1. Our son is enjoying these books much more as a 9-year-old than he did as a 5-year-old. I don’t think he was quite ready for them then. He remembers being scared by this book the first time he read it.
