School is out. Summer is in.
For these kids this means only one thing: STICKBALL SEASON! Carlton C. Higgins, the neighborhood’s best stickball player, can’t wait for the new season to begin. A pink “Spaldeen” ball has been bought, the broomstick borrowed, and teams picked… almost. A last-minute substitution will make this stickball season one for the record books! Dive into the nostalgia of a treasured New York City street game and unfold the play-by-play of a surprise friendship.
About Steve & Bob
Steve and Bob have known each other “since the crib,” and have become a life-long duo on the drums and piano. Growing up in the same building in the Bronx, these two boys played many a game of stickball, punchball, basketball, and “Johnny-on-the-Pony.” And, as fate would have it, they married sisters! From being chased by bullies through the parks of New York City, to sitting petrified atop runaway horses, to stumbling head-over-heels—err, skiing!—down the ski hill of the iconic Kutsher’s Resort, this book represents just the latest in a long friendship of laughter-filled adventures and shenanigan-riddled stories.
