Baseball and basketball action abound in this Sports Story Series book from Washington Post KidsPost columnist and author Fred Bowen - perfect for fans of Mike Lupica and Tim Green.

"Perfect Game is about the important lessons sports can teach: How to play for the love of the game." ―Tim Shriver, Chairman of the Board, Special Olympics

When he volunteers with a team of developmentally disabled players, Isaac learns the true meaning of a "perfect" game.

Isaac is determined to pitch a perfect game: no hits, no runs, no walks, and no errors. He can't settle for less if he wants to make the summer all-star team. But when he allows a hit, Isaac keeps losing his cool on the mound and can't get his head back in the game.

Then Issac meets a very interesting Unified Sports basketball player who gets him thinking in a different way about the whole idea of a "perfect" game. But will this change in perspective help him be a better pitcher?

Themes of kindness, friendship, perfection, and ability star in this inspiring installment of Fred Bowen's Sports Story Series.
