Annotation:
From veteran children's book author Patricia MacLachlan, this is a sad, sweet story about sibling relationships and family, with a little baseball thrown in. Even though he was only 3, Jake knew that his newborn baby brother Edward was special from the moment he first held him. Seemingly blessed with incredible intelligence and intuition, Edward was beloved by everyone, and an expert baseball player. When tragedy strikes the family, they must cope with the worst by comforting each other.
Author Bio
Patricia MacLachlan
A graduate of the University of Connecticut, MacLachlan is a writer and a teacher. She is an author of both picture books and books for middle readers, but is probably best known for the 1986 Newbery Medal-winning book SARAH, PLAN AND TALL. Many of her books reflect the theme of the strength and importance of family.

Praise

"[A]n...engaging story of an unusual family, in which each character is quickly and fully realized, and vivid dialogue helps set each scene." 7/15/2007

"Newbery Medalist MacLachlan brings her story to a conclusion that is both unbearably sad and uplifting, delivered, like the whole, in perfect pitch." 7/16/2007
