Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6At first glance, this collection of poems and narrative text seems rather slight. But there is really more here than meets the eye. The text exhibits some real moments of humor, and the poetry, all about sports, actually provides examples of many different forms, including haiku, concrete poetry, quatrains, and couplets. Jeremy and his two friends have signed up for every team possible during the new school year. Caught by last year's English teacher at registration, Jeremy is more or less forced to also sign up for a repeat of her poetry class. He agrees to enroll if he can write about sports. The book is a mix of short narrative chapters about the sports encountered by the three friends followed by five to six humorous poems. A great way to get boys reading and writing poetry.Judith Constantinides, East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA
