About the Book
It's one, two, three strikes, you're out, as the Cream Puffs seek sweet revenge!

Here come the Cream Puffs! Nate and his baseball team, saddled with the most embarrassing moniker in Little League history, want to show the world they’re not just a bunch of cupcakes. But it won’t be easy. Their opponents mock them. The local sports section misprints Nate’s name—THREE TIMES. And now, on the day of the big game, illness and injuries have the team facing a crushing defeat . . . unless the unlikeliest Cream Puff of all can come in from the bullpen and save the day.

With a softhearted pitcher who channels his inner panda, a vengeful girlfriend who swings for the fences, and a healthy dose of Nate Wright mojo, the Cream Puffs just might have what it takes to stage an epic comeback. So grab a glove, smear on some eyeblack, and get in the game. You don’t want to miss a single moment of Revenge of the Cream Puffs!

My Take on the Book
Nate and his friends are highlighted in events in their everyday life. In this book, Lincoln Peirce used a "comic book" style approach to depicting events with Nate and his friends. There are colorful illustrations and speech bubbles. It is a humorous book to read. It is interesting to see how the author takes every day events that could happen and turns them into humorous situations.

The topics of the various stories within the book is detention hall for Nate after school, the yard sale, the Sadie Hawkins dance with Kim taking him to it, summer vacation, the rope swing and baseball. The title REVENGE OF THE CREAM PUFFS illustrates the fact that Nate and his friends have an unusual team name but they show everyone their strength during the game.

This is an easy and funny book to enjoy for any older child who enjoys reading.
