Left Bank Books welcomes three-time Caldecott Medalist and three-time Caldecott honoree David Wiesner, who will sign and discuss his new picture book, I Got It!
David Wiesner brings his trademark artistry and rich imagination to the iconic American game of baseball. The few seconds after the ball leaves the bat can be infinitely long. For this eager young outfielder, there's plenty of time to envision the increasingly fantastic and funny situations that might interfere with making the catch. Summoning determination and courage, he overcomes the imaginary obstacles and turns them into a springboard for success. I Got It! reveals the extraordinary within the ordinary, taking readers on an amazing journey in a few seconds on a baseball field.
"Three-time Caldecott Medalist David Wiesner hits it out of the park with this almost-wordless picture book about a boy who just wants to be part of the baseball team." —Booklist, starred review
