Ballpark Mysteries #2: The Pinstripe Ghost by David A. Kelly- ADVISABLE

Kelly, David A.  Meyers, Mark.  Ballpark Mysteries #2: The Pinstripe Ghost (A Stepping Stone Book), 112 pages. Random House Books for Young Readers, 2011. Language-G; Violence-G; Sexual Content-G. $.   Cover:  “What’s the most famous ballpark in America? Yankee Stadium!  And Mike and Kate are going there for three whole days.  But even before the first pitch, the cousins hear a strange rumor- Babe Ruth’s ghost is haunting the new stadium!  Chilly air comes blasting down a service hallway before every home game.  The gusts are followed by a series of thumps and bumps. Is it the Babe searching for his missing locker?” I liked this book!  It kept my attention and I liked the drawings.  I also like the information about Yankee Stadium at the end of the book.  EL.  ADVISABLE.  Student Reviewer:  JL- age 8.
