Prince gets new crown!

The Latest Baggott News

The Prince of Fenway Park has recently been selected for Florida's Sunshine State Book Awards, and the Massachusetts Childrens Book Award list.

The Prince of Fenway Park

"... a delicious little fairy tale about the National Pastime."

"Richly imagined ... young sports fans will revel in Baggott's underworld ... especially young residents of Red Sox Nation, [who] will dig their cleats in for a thoroughly involving tale."
--Kirkus Reviews

"... brilliant premise ... Both whimsical and provocative, this story will engage readers who like clever tales, and also those who enjoy chewing over controversial themes."
-- School Library Journal (John Peters, New York Public Library)

"If you have a young reader ... [The Prince of Fenway Park] should score a home run.... a wild adventure..." -- Cape Cod Times
