About the Book

Arthur Makes the Team

Arthur is thrilled to make the Little League team, but worries that he won't be able to play as well as all his friends. At practice he tries hard, but his skills are rusty and he's an absolute klutz. Francine, who thinks she's the best player on the team, wants the coach to bench Arthur. Even Buster's good luck charm (a shriveled up carrot) doesn't help Arthur do better at batting or fielding the ball. As the first game creeps closer --- will Arthur be able to show his teammates that they can count on him?
