3.5.3 Swindle 4-Pack
This book is the above-level title in the 3.5 Book Club Teacher's Guide. Students will have fun reading one of the books in the Swindle series by Gordon Korman, and hopefully will be excited to read the rest of the books in the series across the summer! This book ties in with Maniac Magee through the topic of baseball!
Blurb: Griffin Bing is on his way to a million dollars…until a mean collector named S. Wendell Palomino (a.k.a. Swindle) tricks him out of a rare Babe Ruth baseball card. Now Griffin must put together a team of friends (and one or two enemies) to get it back.
There are many things standing in their way – a menacing guard dog, a high-tech security system, a very secret hiding place, and the fact that none of them can drive. But Griffin is a Man With a Plan, and even if some things go way beyond his control, he’s not going to let his fortune go without a fight.
