Coming this fall... Wait! It's out now and getting great reviews. It's my deep dive into Babe Ruth's many interests: music, boxing, golf, football, acting, among other things. Ruth's off-the-field antics will dazzle you as much as his on-the-field prowess. Formats: audio book and a square format paperback. Suitable for the middle grade reader and beyond.
In W. Nikola-Lisa's latest book, The Things He Could Have Been: Stories of Babe Ruth, the Yankee slugger is revealed as a kind-hearted individual who never forgot his roots even after becoming famous. Ruth touched the lives of others both through his generosity and bonding with fans. These tantalizing glimpses of a sports hero's life, whose passion for baseball not only revolutionized the game but also helped pull America out of the gloom of the Great Depression, is a must-have for school and public library shelves.
