The new novel by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author is a wondrous tale of magic, fairies, growing up, heroism--and baseball. Unabridged. 12 CDs.
From the Publisher:
When Summerland, a remarkable area known for its perfect weather and controlled by tiny beings know as ferishers, is threatened by an ancient enemy, they enlist the aid of baseball player Ethan Feld, who, along with his friend Jennifer T. Rideout, a friendly werefox, and other companions, sets out to vanquish giants, goblins, and a magical ball club.
Still reeling from the death of his mother, 11-year-old Ethan Feld must also adjust to life in a new town when he and his father move to Clam Island, Washington. Clam Island is a pretty amazing place: it rains almost every day except for a section of the island known as "Summerland" where perfect weather is guaranteed for the months of June, July, and August. Ethan joins the Summerland baseball team and, despite the fact that he's not much of an athlete, or perhaps because of it, Ethan is recruited by a mystical talent scout who takes him into a parallel universe where he and his friends must face off against several magical creatures in a baseball game that will determine the fate of the world. This is the first children's book written by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon.
Author Bio
Michael Chabon
Chabon wrote his first short story (heavily influenced by the Sherlock Holmes stories) when he was 10. He graduated from the University of Pittsburgh, then studied at the University of California-Irvine writer's program; his first novel, THE MYSTERIES OF PITTSBURGH--his M.F.A. thesis--was published when he was 24.


Kirkus Reviews
"The sprawling, vigorous narrative pulls out all the stops, gleefully reveling in the wonders it produces at every turn, from the magically ever-sunny corner of drizzly Clam Island to the varied denizens of the Summerlands. This raucous, exhilarating, joyful, and above all, fun offering displays and enormous respect for the tradition of great fantasies that come before it, from Irving, Baum, and Nesbit, to Lewis, Tolkien, and Pullman, while confidently taking its place beside them." 09/01/2002

Entertainment Weekly
"[T]he author's gifts for metaphor and description hold the spiraling fantasy together, the humble giving human shape to the unreal. It's clear he's got a truer ear than J.K. Rowling." - Troy Patterson 10/02/02
