    One thought on “The Philly Fake”

    1. Ballpark: Philadelphia PhilliesSomeone is causing the Philadelphia Phillies' bats to break, which is costing the team wins. The prime suspect is the team's mascot, the Phanatic. Of course, it wouldn't be a mystery if the obvious answer was correct. So Mike and Kate team up to find the real culprit. The culprit's scheme, like all the ones in this series, is a bit contrived, but the resolution manages to bring everything together well enough to be satisfying. These mysteries are basically a kids' [...]

    2. Cousins, Kate and Mike, are baseball fanatics. Lucky for them, Kate's mom happens to be a sports reporter, so they get to tag along on plenty of trips to the ballpark. Each game offers up a new mystery, and Kate and Mike put their heads together to solve the puzzle. Like when Kate's mom took them to see the Phillie's play. Hot dogs zoomed through the air as the game geared up. The Phillie Phanatic rode out on his ATV, drawing attention from the crowd. Everyone was exited, watching the game, when [...]

    3. Another adorable Ballpark Mystery book, this time set in Philadelphia. Mike and Kate have to solve the mystery of who is breaking the Phillies' bats. Along the way, they (and the reader) learn some American history, get to know the ins and out of the ballpark, and become friends with the Phillie Phanatic (the mascot). Great book for 1st-4th grade baseball lovers.

    4. I didn't really know much about the Phillies before I read this book, but this team really is steeped in tradition and they honor their city's history, well. This story does the same. Very well written!
