Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard and his wife Krystle have struck a deal with Scholastic publishing company to ink a collection of children’s books. The baseball-themed chapter series, called “Little Rhino,” is geared toward kids aged 7 to 10, a demographic Mrs. Howard is familiar with from her days as an elementary school teacher.
The first six books in the series are all expected to be about drawing strength from failure and adversity. They are rumored to be titled: Backwards K, Caught Looking, Trouble With The Curve, Ow: My Achilles!, The Shift and Brian Wilson Struck Me Out While I Watched and My Fans Still Haven’t Gotten Over It. Expect a copyright lawsuit to follow for the third one.
