Ball Park Mysteries 7: The San Francisco Splash by David A Kelly

Mike and Kate are at the game again, this time in San Francisco.  They are out there on the bay hoping to pick up a "splash ball".  Homeruns often get as far as the water.  What they end up saving is not a ball though; it's an ex-baseball player!

This is a Random House Stepping Stone Book that was sent to me for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can snag a copy at your local bookstore.  There are several more in this series, so check those out, too.  It's great for any baseball fan or for boys.

When Mike helps get the older man out of the water, he learns he's a famous player who has played in the world series.  Then they find his series ring is missing.  Did it fall in the bay or was it stolen?

These are easy to read chapter books that have a mystery to solve.  Even if your child is not wild about reading, these might entice them.  Why not give it a try?

Happy reading.

Hey boy or girl if you are a mystery lover this is probably for you. As a kid I always loved hardy boys more than nancy drew...just saying.
