Brady Brady and the Ballpark Bark
Mary Shaw, illustrated by Chuck Temple
Batter-up! It's baseball season and Brady Brady is ready to hit it out of the park!
Brady Brady can't wait hit the baseball diamond — and neither can Brady's dog, Hatrick! The only problem is Hatrick's is a little too enthusiastic about baseball practice, and won't stop trying to catch all of the balls. When Brady is forced to take Hatrick back home, batting practice improves for the team...all except for Tree, who just can't seem to connect.
With the season opener only days away, Brady and the Mudbugs rally around their friend Tree to help him practise, only to discover that they have a secret batting weapon after all — and it's Hatrick! (From Scholastic Canada)
