Robert Newton Peck makes the past come alive in Extra Innings. I am a retired teacher, having taught grades k-12, and Robert Newton Peck is an author children and adults both seem to love if they give him a chance.

Robert Newton Peck makes the past come alive in Extra Innings. A love of baseball isn't needed to be captivated by the story, as layers are peeled off to reveal Aunt Viddy's past, and hope for Tate's future. The insight into the Negro Baseball Leagues, and the the changes going on in society make this compelling. Students of all ages loved his books, and I used them for oral reading in 3rd-4th grade often. However, Extra Innings is a different sort of book from the Soup stories he is most well known for.

Peck claims his birth date to have been February 17, 1928, but refuses to specify his birthplace. It is believed to be Ticonderoga, New York, where he spent his early years with his mother, Lucille Dornburgh Peck, and aunt Caroline Dornburgh.

With over 65 books published, including the breathtaking (and somewhat autobiographical) A Day No Pigs Would Die, Robert Newton Peck has enjoyed an illustrious writing career. Now, in an autobiography as unique as he is, Peck tells his story through the people in his life.

Peck (Cowboy Ghost, 1999, et. stitches together a set of connected but separate tales. They include an airport worker's act of negligence that causes the crash; the Clowns' experiences in towns both hostile and welcoming; the adoption of young Vidalia into the Stonemason family despite the color of her skin; and finally, Vidalia's death, and the keeping of certain promises made to her by Tate and Abbott. They do that, in part, by sharing baseball memories: Abbott, of attending Ty Cobb’s funeral; Vidalia, of Ethiopia’s Clowns, African-American barnstormers who raised her for ten years during the Depression era after she was left as a baby on the team bus.

Crippled in a plane crash, sixteen-year-old Tale Stonemason's dreams of becoming a professional baseball player are gone forever, but turning to his great-grandfather and great-aunt, Tale finds unexpected comfort in their tales that help him get through his difficult recovery.

I liked this book because it shows how two people can talk about baseball for hours at a time even though the boy is in his teens and his aunt is in her 70's. I also liked the book because Tate the boy had to adjust to a new lifestyle after his all his family members had passed away in a plane crash. I didn't like the book because the story just talked about his aunt's life and her traveling with this baseball team.

Robert Newton Peck makes the past come alive in Extra Innings. A love of baseball isn't needed to be captivated by the story, as layers are peeled off to reveal Aunt Viddy's past, and hope for Tate's future. The insight into the Negro Baseball Leagues, and the the changes going on in society make this compelling. Peck writes with a style that makes you feel you are there, and it seems very real. One of Peck's best efforts, though all his novels I've read are well written (he's written over 60 books).

I would also suggest reading A Day No Pigs Would Die, another novel that deals with a young man's struggle through hard times, a great book (for older youth or adults). But most of all, give a read to any of his Soup books. You will love the character, and the stories are funny and well written, enjoyable to children and adults alike. Any age child will enjoy reading or having the Soup stories read to them. They are semi-autobiographical novels by Peck.

I am a retired teacher, having taught grades k-12, and Robert Newton Peck is an author children and adults both seem to love if they give him a chance. Students of all ages loved his books, and I used them for oral reading in 3rd-4th grade often. However, Extra Innings is a different sort of book from the Soup stories he is most well known for. It is full of wonderful characters and depth, with a story that grabs you, humorous, but not as lighthearted and funny as the Soup novels (a bit more serious in tone), but not as sad as A Day No Pigs Would Die, even though it deals with some loss and hardship.
