This book was very exciting once I got into it, but the first 2 chapters were kind of boring. Also, there were a few too many characters and it was hard to tell some apart.

Ethan Feld plays Little League baseball at the Summerlands, a little peninsula of land where the weather is perfectly idyllic year-round (though Ethan’s game doesn’t match the climate—he holds the team record for most errors and fewest hits). The Summerlands also provides a link between our world and other worlds, and it is through this path that the trickster Coyote creeps to kidnap Ethan’s inventor father. Much to Ethan’s surprise, he is recruited by the Ferishers, the fairy-like tribe of baseball-loving beings who dwell secretly in the Summerlands, to be their own personal hero and save them from Coyote’s schemes. Ethan collects a motley crew of companions along the way--including a wise werefox, a lonely Sasquatch, and his teammates Jennifer T. and Thor Wignutt--and ends up playing the game of his life against Coyote’s band of ghouls. More is at stake than the Ferishers’ right to their homeland or even Mr. Feld’s life. The fate of the world rests in the baseball bat and glove of young Ethan, worst baseball player in the history of the game. An imaginative, complex fantasy full of magical lands and otherworldly creatures, Summerland is a story for all ages from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay. Summerland is infused with adventure, challenging and entertaining themes, American mythology, and above all, the grand game of baseball.
