Publisher's Summary

Joe Stoshack may be an awkward kid, but he knows baseball - and baseball cards. Since he was seven, he has been collecting them. So when his mother tells him he can earn five dollars by cleaning out an old lady's attic, Joe dreams of the cards he can buy.

It's long, dusty work, and Joe is down to the last boxes when a piece of cardboard falls to the floor. With a shock, he recognizes the face of Honus Wagner, one of baseball's great early players. It is the most valuable baseball card in the world, and in mint condition! Before Joe can decide whether to tell the old woman or keep the card, he discovers it can carry him through time and space. Soon, he is with Honus in 1909!

Popular children's author Dan Gutman creates a fantastic adventure that is sure to hit a home run with baseball fans of all ages. Johnny Heller's narration adds extra spin to the action.

    "Absolutely Delightful"

    This was a wonderful story, making me go back and to learn more about Honus Wagner. I will be looking for additional stories written by Johnny Heller. Very entertaining!

    Story
    "A great baseball story for children and adults"
    If you could sum up Honus & Me in three words, what would they be?

    Fun, Informative, Enjoyable


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Honus Wagner due to the lessons he taught Stosh.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Stosh has to decide what to do with the card-Keep it, sell it or return it to the unsuspecting owner.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I chuckled a few times, but my son laughed several times.


    Any additional comments?

    We listened to this and a few other of the Baseball Card Adventures on car rides in the past few months. They are well written and enjoyable for everyone in the car. Each book ends with facts about the players that are visited in that story so they are also informative.

    Story
    "For Young Baseball Fans - FANTASTIC!"

    My 9 year old son loved this book. He couldn't stop listening to it. It is filled with factual baseball information and the time travel aspect is a great hook. It's a "Field of Dreams" series for kids!
