A funny, heavily illustrated new chapter book series about sports and sportsmanship by the acclaimed author of Game Changer
Annabella Donatello likes to do everything. She likes to draw, fly kites, play soccer, cook, and eat what she cooks. She even likes to do math! But there are two things she loves most of all: softball and performing. So she’s thrilled when she gets cast in the school play, on top of being the star pitcher of her softball team.
Unfortunately, her softball coach is less thrilled about Annabella’s busy schedule. And with the championships coming up, the pressure is on to make softball her number one priority, even when an important practice conflicts with opening night of the show. To be in two places at once, Annabella hatches a plan that will put all of her softball and acting skills to the test.
