Description
From the first pitch to the last out and all nine innings between, Douglas Florian s
collection of baseball poems brings wordplay, wit, and laughter to America s
springtime tradition. Featuring a mean-armed pitcher, a daisy-picking right fielder,
and a lightning-swift base stealer, Poem Runs combines irresistible language and
Florian's signature child-friendly, bold illustration style in this celebration of the magic
of baseball.
