Baseball is back--and so is Bonaparte!  Join one anxious skeleton, Bonaparte, and his monster friends as they celebrate America's favorite pastime by competing in the Weird Series and stand up to bullies on the field. 

It's the Weird Series and Bonaparte's team, the Little Monsters, are gearing up to play against the Mighty Aliens for the championship title.

The competition is fierce and Bonaparte, of course, is a jumble of bones. What if he loses his backbone while at bat? What if the Mighty Aliens make fun of him?

With bullies on the other team and the bases loaded, will Bonaparte be able to hold himself together and hit a home run without losing his head?

Fans of Bonaparte Falls Apart will delight in seeing this cast of monstrous friends band together to overcome their nerves and remain good sports as they play the game of their lives!
