Katie Casey walks, talks, and dreams baseball in a time when girls don’t play baseball. But when the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League is formed, Katie gets her chance at bat. Inspired by the same real-life events that informed the movie A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN, Shana Corey’s (YOU FORGOT YOUR SKIRT, AMELIA BLOOMER) celebration of pioneering women is a girl-power anthem for the picture-book set. Actress Zooey Deschanel gives a sympathetic, if not particularly peppy or inspired, performance, highlighting Katie’s independent spirit and Corey’s clever alliteration. Lively background music and Rebecca Gibbon’s fun, colorful illustrations add to the ambiance. J.M.D. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
