About the Book

Three-time Caldecott winner and bestseller David Wiesner works his visual magic in this near-wordless account of the most suspenseful, nerve-wracking few seconds in a baseball game.

David Wiesner brings his trademark artistry and rich imagination to the iconic American game of baseball. The few seconds after the ball leaves the bat can be infinitely long. For this eager young outfielder, there's plenty of time to envision the increasingly fantastic and funny situations that might interfere with making the catch. Summoning determination and courage, he overcomes the imaginary obstacles and turns them into a springboard for success. I Got It! reveals the extraordinary within the ordinary, taking readers on an amazing journey in a few seconds on a baseball field.

Critical Praise

"Wiesner’s latest nearly wordless picture book features his trademark hyperrealistic art that makes the ordinary extraordinary with visual narrative twists that are always unexpected, never predictable." — Horn Book Magazine

"The showing of the plausible to wild might- have-beens during that mysteriously long moment before a ball thwacks into a mitt is entertaining, and there’s a clever rhythm in the cutting back to slightly progressed reality (the ball gets closer to the kid’s outstretched hand) after each flight of fancy." — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
