"If I Were a Jungle Animal" written by Amanda Ellery and illustrated by Tom Ellery
Bored with standing in the outfield with little to do, Morton begins to daydream about what life must be like as an animal in the jungle, but as he thinks about what it would be like to be a great lion roaming in the grass, a ball is hit in his direction and he must quickly get back to reality in order to make the play.
