The few seconds after the ball leaves the bat can be infinitely long. For this eager young player, 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 of the imagination in a few seconds on a baseball field.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"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 *
"Three-time Caldecott Medalist David Wiesner hits it out of the park with this almost-wordless picture book[.] - Booklist, starred review" -- Booklist * Booklist *
"[E]xpertly layers elements of relatable emotion, boundless imagination, eye-popping action, and out-and-out fun... Wiesner's beautifully composed paintings realistically portray his characters, their activities, and their social interactions, making the flights of fancy all the more effective. [Readers] will relate to this story. VERDICT A mesmerizing and entertaining offering that will be enjoyed by a broad audience. A must-have addition to sports shelves. - SLJ, starred review" -- SLJ * SLJ *
"Wiesner is a master of fantastical wordless (or nearly so) adventures, and what seems like a simple event becomes a series of might-have-beens and possibilities... Readers will interpret it any way they wish, perhaps differently with each perusal... Wonderfully imaginative and intriguing. - Kirkus, starred review" -- Kirkus * Kirkus *
"[I Got It!] features [Wiesner's] trademark hyperrealistic art that makes the ordinary... extraordinary with visual narrative twists that are always unexpected, never predictable. - Horn Book" -- Horn Book * Horn Book *
