I am a baseball lover from Des Moines, Iowa. Home to the I-Cubs and the farm team for the Cubs so when I saw this book I knew I had to review it! The Adventures of Lefty and Righty is the story of two socks who fall out of the dryer hitch a ride on a pair of jeans and set off to see the sights of the Windy City. On their day out they ride on a train, eat a hot dog with all the trimmings, museums to see, ride on a water taxi, and take in the Navy Pier.

Oh wait! The Cubs are playing the White Sox, but will we get there in time? Their day of fun was perfect! I loved every minute of this book. Filled with rhymes and beautifully colored scenes this book brought a smile to my face and a warmth to my heart. I also enjoyed the travel guide aspect of this book and it would make an excellent precursor to any trip to Chicago.

Finally, the illustrations are gorgeous, I LOVE how comical they are, and their expressions were spot on! They truly brought the characters to life. I absolutely loved this book and can see myself re-reading it over and over again. I look forward to more books from this author and think this would be an awesome series exploring a variety of cities across the US!
