Green tells the story about a young girl from Eastern Virginia who wants nothing more than to stand on the pitcher’s mound throwing strikes. A Strong Right Arm: The Story of Mamie "Peanut" Johnson is a biography written about an African American girl who dreamed of playing baseball in the big leagues.
A winning biography of Mamie 'Peanut' Johnson. She is also the author of the award-winning children’s book series, Willie Pearl, a book about her mother set in a Depression-era coal mining town. the true story of the underdog who succeeds despite tremendous odds.
I believe this book deserves a five star because it tells everything about Peanut Johnson and his struggles to play in the Major Leagues. This book is about one of the first African American baseball players to play baseball in 1948. The problem in the story is that the . B wont let him play because the color of his skin. But after many protests and the fact that they already let Jackie Robinson play. He was really excited to play. I would recommend this book because of its really good if you like baseball
