Overview

When it comes to basketball, the Porker twins, Brendan and Belinda, are at the top of their game. They shoot hoops every chance they get, they practice regularly, and at night they study televised pro games with their dad. He hopes that one day they'll be as good as the superstars they see on TV!

No one is happier than Mr. Porker when the twins are recruited to join the elite Jump Shot Juniors League. Except now Brendan and Belinda don't have time for anything but basketball. They are exhausted. But how can they disappoint Dad, their biggest fan?

This action-packed book by Anne Rockwell and Paul Meisel stars two wise young athletes who know that playing for the top-notch team isn't nearly as important as enjoying the gameā€”on and off the court.

Brendan and Belinda and their dad, Mr. Porker, learn that being a good sport means playing the game well and having fun too.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Twins Brendan and Belinda Porker like basketball, but their father loves it. On Friday nights, they play with the Jump Shot Juniors. On Saturdays, they play with the All-Hoops Parents and Kids League. On Sundays, they practice, and every night they go over plays with their father. After a big snow, Brendan and Belinda want to play with their friends; Mr. Porker wants to leave early for practice to make sure they aren't late. When the kids begin to cry, he sees it might not be necessary for them to live and breathe basketball even if they want to be superstars in the future. Rockwell and Meisel team up again for this short sports story that seems aimed more at pushy parents than their sporty offspring. The facile resolution and meaningless title don't diminish the importance of the message, and Meisel's wide-eyed animal people are as engagingly fun as ever. (Picture book. 4-6)
