Gr 3–5—Filled with fast-paced, engaging writing, this series is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Determined, talented teams can rally to come back for big victories, like the 2004 ALS comeback of the Red Sox over the Yankees, a stunning upset that led to the Sox sweeping the Cardinals in the World Series. In addition to showcasing teams that change their fates, each book contains a section that highlights players who have returned to their sport after devastating illness or injuries. Perhaps most memorable for young readers will be the story of Peyton Manning, who was traded by his longtime team, the Colts, after back surgery and ended up winning the Super Bowl with his new team, the Broncos. Highly visual and engaging, this series is full of winning titles.
