Randy Riley’s Really Big Hit - Chris Van Dusen

Released February 2012

Book Review by Bob Walch

Randy Riley likes space, robots, and baseball. Unfortunately, he’s a much better scientist than baseball player, but that works to everyone’s advantage in this humorous picture book.

When a fireball from outer space endangers Randy’s hometown, the youngster uses his science ability and know-how on building robots to create a hulking creature that will step up to the plate and save everyone.

Although he might never hit a home run with a regulation bat in his hands, Randy puts one over the fence with his robot. This delightful story will also be a big hit with any child who loves baseball but perhaps will not be a candidate for the All Star Team.
