It's the ninth inning! The Philly Fake is book #9 in our early chapter book mystery series, where each book is set in a different American ballpark!

What better city to spend the Fourth of July than Philadelphia? For Mike and Kate, the holiday is all about hot dogs, history, and baseball! But the Phillies are in no mood to celebrate. They keep losing, and some people blame the lovable Phillie Phanatic! Can Mike and Kate help the Phanatic clear his name?

The Philly Fake includes several pages of "Dugout Notes," fun facts about Philly's ballpark.

Cross Ron Roy's A to Z Mystery series with Matt Christopher's sports books and you get the Ballpark Mysteries: fun, puzzling whodunits aimed at the younger brothers and sisters of John Feinstein fans.

(A little advice from the sidlines) Dont you think your story 'the forgotten' is a little violent? I mean i like action but in your story poeple punch and slap and kick a little to much! The world ninjago is not all violence. I think you shold add some good fun humer every one in a while. Im just saying please dont take offence but.... oh yeah! Where and what time dose your story take place? -KABOOM Jay_light'n_bolts
