Hilarious writing for children and grownups – Bean’s writing is pure fun,¬†February 21, 2014
With children visiting on school vacation and trying to find some fun reading for them to do (to be able to compete successfully against the iPad), I was looking for any sports-themed book for kids where the writing has spark – and with this book, I feel like I struck gold. I ordered Baseball: A Ticket To The Bigs (Kindle version) after looking at a preview and immediately realizing the writing and wit are of very high quality.My 11-year-old nephew started the book one evening, had to be practically forced to stop reading at bedtime, and didn’t put the book down the next day until he was finished. I heard him laugh out loud so many times, I decided to read the story myself. I started it last night, stayed up late reading, and just finished it this morning. It is what I call “rollicking fun”. I’d love to see a film made of this story.

I recommend this book 1000%. This work is proof that one can write an outstanding thoroughly modern story without any swear words, sex, and violence, making it a reliable, healthy, fun read for any age kid. As mentioned in the title, this is an easy fun read for us adults, too. I see from the author’s profile that he is a parent and teacher – in fact, after looking at Raymond Bean’s profile (shown below from Raymond Bean’s author’s page), I am about to order some more books by Raymond Bean!

Here is what his profile says:
