It's a new baseball season and the Champs have new uniforms and new determination--even if they did finish last in the series last season. But when Wombat wanders onto the field on opening day, the Champs are in for a big surprise--and younger readers will wind Lynn Munsinger's drawings hilarious and engaging in this story of a wombat's participation. Lester L. Laminack's JAKE'S 100TH DAY OF SCHOOL (1561453552, $16.95) receives Judy Love's drawings and tells of the surprises being planned for the 100th day of school. Jake's planning on showing off his big project of 100 photos--but when the day arrives he rushes out without his project. Can he participate when he's forgotten the best idea of all? Kids in grades 3-4 will relate to the story and will applaud the surprise ending.
