Reviews

Praise for The Greatest Game Ever Played

"An intriguing balance of realism and caricature, his artwork scores a win, especially with its evocations of the ingenuous protagonist's profound emotions."--Publishers Weekly"Weaves the touching story of a son's reluctance to give up his time with his father and his father's rediscovery of the joys of sharing this sport with his son. The marvelous illustrations are a study in expressions and mannerisms right down to the steam coming from breaths in the cold air. A great book for fathers to share with their kids."--Children's Literature"This is an engaging tale, well told, and a warm portrayal of the bond between sports-loving fathers and sons."--School Library Journal" Readers will enjoy the period detail, the recognizable-but-even-larger-than-life football heroes on the field and the reminder that shared pleasures are best."--Kirkus Reviews"The energy of the paintings perfectly matches Bildner's lively text, which brings to light some great football history to share across generations."--Booklist
