I was quite dubious about the quality I might expect from this book but it was great. My six year old loves basketball and this is the best kid's book with basketball as a theme we've read. He was quite engaged and it also dealt very well with issues of friendship and growing up as well as having lots of exciting basketball action and lingo. Well written - Amar'e does a great job
