Baker & Taylor
Eleven-year-old slugger Banjo "The Great Walloper" Bishbash is overcome by a nasty hitting slump as he tries to lead the Rambletown Rounders to the division baseball championship.


They call me Walloper because I'm no ordinary hitter.

Or at least that used to be the case. Now I couldn't hit a beach ball and my batting average is going down faster than the Titanic. With the pennant on the line, I've got a slump cloud over my head so big it's being covered by the Weather Channel. The forecast is grim, but I hope there's one big swing left in my bat so the Rambletown Rounders can win the pennant and I can end this historic drought.

Kevin Markey's debut novel is a hilarious tall tale of baseball action and high jinks that will have fans reveling in every trip around the pages.

& Taylor

With a slump cloud lingering over his head, Walloper has to find a way to rid himself of his bad luck or else his team, the Rambletown Rounders, will have no chance at winning the pennant when they come face-to-face with the Hog City Haymakers in the final game.
