Chabon, Michael; Joyce, William (Illustrator)

For over a century, the people of Clam Island, Washington, have enjoyed barbecues and baseball games at Summerland, on the Western tip of the island, where it never rains. The small beings, known as ferishers, who ensure this perfect weather, however, are threatened by an ancient enemy, and need a hero, a baseball star, in fact, to vanquish their foe. Summerland is the story of Ethan Feld, the worst ball player in the history of the game, recruited by a hundred-year-old scout called Ringfinger Brown, himself a Negro League Legend. Accompanied by his determined friend, Jennifer T. Rideout, and guided by a friendly werefox, Ethan struggles to defeat giants, bat-winged goblins, and one of the toughest ballclubs in the realms of magic, to save all the Summerlands, and ultimately the world.


Eleven-year-old Ethan Feld, an unsuccessful baseball player, is recruited to travel between worlds to save his own.
