Publishers Weekly, 1990-09-28 When a newspaper reports that T. V. Adams, third baseman for the Peach Street Mudders, seems to have psychic powers, T.V.'s playing is all fouled up. Ages 7-9. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
Publishers Weekly, 1988-11-25 T.V. Adams is not a real spyhe's simply a very close observer of the playing styles of his teammates and opponents. Because he is often able to predict how a ball will be pitched and batted, others misinterpret his skill as psychic ability and resent him. Heavy on blow-by-blow descriptions of baseball games and strategy, light on characterization and plot, this slim novel will just barely maintain the reader's attention. T.V.'s dilemma would have been more compelling if his character had been more developed. For fans of this prolific sportswriter, the undistinguished plot may be offset by the emphasis on sportsmanship and the sheer abundance of baseball lingo. Illustrations not seen by PW. Ages 8-10.
