Here is the amazing cover of Clack, Clack! Smack! A Cherokee Stickball Story by Traci Sorell and illustrated by Joseph Erb! The book will release from Charlesbridge on August 6, 2024.
Award-winning author Traci Sorell and debut picture-book illustrator Joseph Erb come together to create a book about a game important to Cherokee people—stickball. Can the Eagles clack, clack their sticks together to smack the pole in time to win?
Vann isn’t a good player. He messed up in a game just last week, and he’s feeling down on himself. He doesn’t know if he’s OK when his friend and star player, Jesse, asks, “Osdatsu?”
Can these two boys work together to bring victory to their team?
Congrats to all!
