Wild Rumpus welcomes three-time Caldecott medalist and three-time Caldecott-honoree David Wiesner as we celebrate his newest picture book, I Got It!


"Three-time Caldecott Medalist David Wiesner hits it out of the park with this almost-wordless picture book about a boy who just wants to be part of the baseball team."
Booklist, starred review

"Wiesner is a master of fantastical wordless (or nearly so) adventures."
Kirkus, starred review

"Wiesner conveys with startling immediacy how time slows in moments of crisis, and the way that people move back and forth between the outer world of reality and the complicated, many-dimensional world of interior consciousness."
Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A mesmerizing and entertaining offering that will be enjoyed by a broad audience. A must-have addition to sports shelves."
School Library Journal, starred review
