Meet one of history's greatest figures in this tale with an animal twist—Yakkie Robinson, a star athlete who became the first African American yak to play on a professional baseball team. When Yakkie wasn't hoofing it to the baseball field, he spent his time fighting for civil rights. With hilarious puns and illustrations that evoke the mid-20th-century classics, this book brings Yakkie's legacy and achievements to life for prereaders, although the factual text may be of interest to older readers as well.
