Popular author Gordon Korman has sold millions of copies of his irreverant books for young readers. In this fast-paced caper, 11-year-old Griffin Bing finds something far more profitable than cobwebs during a haunted house sleepover-a rare Babe Ruth baseball card. But when a swindler scams the card from Griffin for only $125, the resourceful sixth grader and his friends plot their revenge. "If you read it aloud, don't be surprised when your listeners beg you for 'just one more chapter.'"-School Library Journal

"Gordon Korman has mapped out the terrain of "boy fiction," and Jonathan Todd Ross brings it gleefully to life in the best Disney movie fashion. When 11-year-old Griffin realizes that the local collectible shop owner has lied to him about the value of his Babe Ruth baseball card, having paid him a mere $120 for a card that could fetch over a million, he and his buddies spring into action. Each boy brings a special talent to the project, from computer hacker to dog whisperer to climbing expert. Given perfect material for family listening, Ross draws out the cliff-hangers, the double crosses, and the considerable humor with a skill that leaves the listener eager for more. D.G.
