Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Patricia Wooster
Danny is not the average kid. He attends the Victory School for Super Athletes. His special sports ability is his speed and, with football season over, he decides to try wrestling. He doesn't know how to make his skill work to his advantage in this new sport, so he dances around the wrestling mat. The Coach convinces Danny not to quit the team, but to work hard and give 110 percent. Danny uses problem-solving skills to figure out how he can use speed to win wrestling matches. This book is part of the Sports Illustrated Kids "Victory School Superstars" series teaching life lessons and dedication through sports. Nickel creates an entertaining story while teaching the value of perseverance. Santillan's graphic illustrations are bright and fun. A timeline of the history of wrestling and a glossary provide the reader with additional facts about the sport. Readers will enjoy getting to know Danny, and the sport of wrestling.
