Okay, makes sense. They do have to conserve those fossil fuels. Except for baseball card factories.
Those are important. A great series about kids with magical powers-until it got hijacked by global warming. It would make sense if there had been any mention of global warming in the nine books before this one.

One positive comment on the book is how I liked how a lot of the events in the book w I read a book called Roberto and Me by Dan Gutman. One positive comment on the book is how I liked how a lot of the events in the book were true, and how they combined the events and H.
I also liked how the book got into detail describing the Pirates stadium, how Stosh was struggling in Spanish, and how Stosh went out to dinner with Roberto Clemente. These were all amazing ways to combine fiction with nonfiction and having interesting details.
They talk about me…
One negative comment is I thought the book was too fictional, and frankly a little bit cheesey. Another negative comment I have is how people like his mom, dad, and baseball coach know he has the power to go back in time, and take it a little bit too casually. If I were them I would be astonished, unlike them who were barely amazed.
I would recommend this book for people who likes sports and know sports, especially baseball. If you are not interested in sports this book might not be for you. I myself however, am very interested in sports and definitely do not regret reading this book. Feb 07, Nick G. I just read the book Roberto and Me. I finished reading it February 7th The book is wrote by Dan Gutman.
The book is pages long. I rated this book four stars because I really liked it. The best part is that in this book he gets to go to the future.
Ask Me About Roberto Clemente
Your going to have to read the book to find out who, why and how the person brings him to the future. He still ends up going to the past. He goes back in time to save Roberto Roberto Clemente. That is the basic information of the book Rober I just read the book Roberto and Me. That is the basic information of the book Roberto and Me. The book starts out with the main character Joe Stoshack. He has a bad grade in spanish class and has to get it up. So he decides to talk to his spanish teacher about extra credit. His spanish teacher is in a wheel chair and always keeps a lit candle on her desk.
She answered the question saying "I keep a lit candle on my desk because along time ago I had a friend, his name was Roberto Clemente. I was in the hospital because I had an infection in my spine. My family couldn't pay the medical bills. Roberto was going to fly on a plane to help me in the hospital by paying my medical bills because he was a very good baseball player in a big baseball league. When he was in the plain the plain crashed and he died.
I never got my medical bills payed. That is why I'm in a wheel chair. I keep the lit candle on my desk as a memory of Roberto. Your going to have to read the book to find out what he does in the past and who, how and why does somebody take him to the future. Mar 20, Andrew rated it it was amazing. He finds out about Clemente from his teacher.
Sadly Roberto died before he could, but Joe wants to change that. So he travels through time to and finds himself during a Jimi Hendrix concert. He travels to Cincinnati where Clemente is and tells him to not board the plane that causes his death. When Joe returns home he finds that Clemente did board the plane and died. But Joe is determined to help his teacher. So he travels back to and sends his teacher the hundred dollar bill that Roberto gave him.
When he returns he finds out that she was cured because of his actions. He also goes forward in time when his great grandson comes and brings him to the future. He learns about the new rules and how bad the world is. I liked this book because Roberto Clemente is one of my favorite baseball players. I recommend this to anyone that enjoys baseball or Clemente.
I love reading this series because of the Sci-Fi plot and many twists. Stosh's Spanish teacher, Senorita Molina, uses a wheelchair. When Stosh meets with her to talk about how he can pull up his terrible grade, he takes advantage of the occasion to ask a question he's had for ages--why does she have a candle burning on her desk? Turns out, she keeps it in memory of Roberto Clemente, one of the most famous Puerto Rican baseball players of all time.
Roberto was more than just a great ball player--he was also a dedicated humanitarian. And one of the things he planned Stosh's Spanish teacher, Senorita Molina, uses a wheelchair. And one of the things he planned to do was to send a Puerto Rican hospital the hundred dollars that would pay for the drugs that young Senorita Molina needed to cure her spinal infection.
But Roberto died before he sent the money, when the plane he was taking to help earthquake victims in Nicaragua crashed I liked how this book was not that fast of a read or to long of a read ,but it was a just perfect book for me cause i love sports and with out them i would be no body with out them. If you want to know if Stosh does make it back from his adventure and save Robertos life read the book!!!!!!!!
May 06, Matthew Hernandez rated it did not like it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I think this book was not that good. It was not good because half the book was spent talking about hippies and Woodstock, and six or seven pages was actually about Roberto and his advice to Stosh.
It was an pretty easy read. But the other half of the book was about burning fossil fuels and the polar ice caps melting and Florida being submerged. But the book was about Stosh going back in time to save Roberto, but goes to the wrong year and ends up in Woodstock. From there he must hitch a ride to I think this book was not that good.
From there he must hitch a ride to Cinncinati with Peter, Wendy, and a girl named Sunrise. When they get to the stadium and witness an amazing game. Then when they meet Roberto he takes them to dinner and gives them good advice. Once Stosh gets to the present Roberto didn't listen to him and still died, but Stosh gets a visitor, his grandson from the future. Once in the year Stosh's grandson warns him about burning fossil fuels. All in all I didn't like this book at all. Mar 22, Nick McCarty rated it it was amazing. In this book there are three main characters.
They are Stosh, Flip, and Roberto. Stosh is a teenage boy that plays baseball for his local team. Flip is the coach of this team and also owns a baseball card store. His store sponsors the team and Flip is also a huge part of Stosh's life. Flip mentors him and is like a second father. One day the topic of some of the best players in baseball history. Flip mentions Roberto Clemente. Stosh has no clue who that is so decides to go back in time to invest In this book there are three main characters. Stosh has no clue who that is so decides to go back in time to investigate.
He finds out why he has no clue who he is because Roberto died in a plane crash before his career was over. I really like this book because it shows the history of baseball that you don't always know about. I also like it because it is learning book and teaches you lessons. The only thing I don't like is that time travel thing, but it is no big deal. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves baseball like me.

However, Stosh soon learns changing the future is more difficult than he expected.

This book and the other baseball card adventure books are great for young sports enthusiasts. They include baseball facts, but also a glimpse of life in different time periods. The stories are written with enough variety and conflict that even non-baseball lovers can enjoy them. Dec 12, Marco Moy rated it really liked it.
Roberto and Me is a scientific fiction baseball book. This is the 10th book in the series, going in no particular order. This book is about 14 year old Joe Stoshack who has the power to travel back in time using baseball cards from the specific year he wants to go to. One day Joe's baseball coach tells him the story and tragedy of how the baseball player Roberto Clemente died in a plane crash on a flight to Nicaragua to help the victims of an earthquake.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars because the story is very unique, and not many books are like this. If you love baseball history, then I recommend this book for you. Gutman's tenth Baseball Card Adventure features Joe Stoshack, who can travel through time by touching baseball cards from different eras.
After Stosh learns about humanitarian and baseball star Roberto Clemente, he travels back in time to try to save him from his early death. Stosh's time travel brings him to Woodstock, where he meets a friendly hippy girl named Sunshine and hears Jimi Hendrix. Stosh then travles with Sunshine to meet and learn from Clemente.

When Stosh returns to the present, he's visited by his time-traveling great-grandson, who brings him to the future and gives him an important mission.
A slightly romantic relationship between Joe and Sunshine, including a kiss, makes this not suited for religious audiences. Aug 29, Kyle Leggett added it. I loved this book!

Nov 08, Jdrysdaleanderson4 rated it it was amazing. He travels to the time that the baseball card was made. One day he had and idea to save a baseball legend called Roberto from a plane crash that happened 20 years ago. But lots of things come in his way from men trying to kidnap him to convincing Roberto to not go on the plane.
After he had talked to Roberto it was no use he still wanted to go on the airplane even knowing that he would dye. Then tom is a boy a that can travel through time using baseball cards. Then when he was walking out of the store that he met Roberto in two men captured him. They brought him to an abundant shed and were about to shoot him when he escaped by using a card to go back home. Roberto and me is about love, perseverance, and passion. Nov 21, Cory rated it it was amazing. Roberto used to be a famous baseball player in Puerto Rico who died while trying to save people during a war.
The boy who went back in time and warned Roberto that he was going to die if he tries to save other people. But Roberto still wanted to do it he said "if i save thousands of peoples life and lose mine, i will be happy because i know i saved other peoples life" so he ignored the boy and did went along to saving thousands of people. While the boy was trying to get home he was jumped by a gang and almost died, but while he was tied up he got back home by using his baseball cards.
I think this book genre is historical fiction and it is man vs self. This book is about a boy named Stosh who has to go back in time and save a man name Roberto Clementine. When he goes back he tells Roberto don't get on the plane. Stosh finds out that the future is all old and nothing knew has happened.

I rated this book 5 starts because this book always has you on edge. This book also has allot of turning points and that's what makes it a great book. Nov 18, Rainier Birco rated it it was amazing. I liked how the author made every chapter make you want to read even more to see what will happen next for Josh Stosack. What I didn't like about the book was that Stosh wasn't able to save Roberto's life from the plane crash going to Nigeria because of the card he had was a Roberto Clemente card instead of a one which was when the plane crashed.

In the book Roberto travels back in time to go and try to save his life. Although he didn't save Roberto's he ended up saving someone else's.
I liked the book because I learned a lot about Roberto Clemente. I also like it because it was about baseball and I love baseball. I couldn't stop reading it! I would recommend this book to 4th to 8th graders. If you like baseball or history then this book is great for you. Imagine a dark room. You go in, turn on the light, and see a corpse. We are constantly immersed in words; the problem is that words have no weight any more. The American president can one day say one thing about Russia , and then the next day overturn it with no consequences.
Literature can return a specific weight to words. What do you find most worrying in Italy at the moment? This is a dangerous government, which risks being the first clearly authoritarian government in Europe [this century]. He based his whole campaign on attacking migrants, while never saying anything against the mafia, of which he understands nothing. What we have is isolation, civil and legal attacks — Salvini criticised me [ threatening to remove his police protection ] as a minister, not as a person, which is unusual.
What are your thoughts on the collapse of the Morandi bridge in Genoa? In the past few years in Italy there have been several incidents in which infrastructure collapsed, crushing people, so there are clearly issues with maintenance. Would you ever go into politics? Do you get tired of being the person who has to comment on Italian crime and corruption?
It tires me to the point where I sometimes feel hopeless. I would sometimes like to not be who I am any more, to have a decent life, but I do it — some people think out of ambition, others narcissism — for honour. A word that fascists have plundered from us. I do it knowing full well that it generates hatred, isolation, contempt. But I go on.
Which writers or investigative journalists do you admire most? He was arrested for revealing in his newspaper [ Cumhuriyet ] that Erdogan was secretly taking part in the war in Syria. In life she was systematically vilified, and in death, the same people started to retract, to speak of a person full of dignity and courage.
Our cities are both protagonists of our books — Naples is never just a backdrop. In America they asked me, how come Ferrante gave you this endorsement? In May you said the UK was the most corrupt country in the world. Do you still think so? Because London has no financial rules: money laundering is the primary source of British financial wealth — the money from Russian or South American coke. When I spoke about this in the UK, the perception was that it was something marginal. What do you like most about Italy?
Every year the equivalent of the population of Verona leaves; the south of Italy is almost uninhabited.
