Basketball Bats / Goof-Off Goalie by Betty Hicks, Adam McCauley

Basketball Bats

Henry and his four friends on Rockford Road are an unbeatable basketball team—on their driveway court. But without team T-shirts or an official name, can they take on the Tigers, a team that plays at the huge YWCA and has a player old enough to shave? Henry feels sure he can lead his friends to victory, but is he really a team player? Or is he a ball hog?

Goof-Off Goalie

There's nothing Goose wants more than to play goalie for his soccer team. It looks like so much fun—and so easy!—on TV. But can he quit daydreaming long enough to stop the ball? With Henry's training, Goose is sure he can go from goof-off to goalie in no time. Just as Goose starts to improve, Henry gets grounded because his grades are slipping. Will Goose help Henry in return? Or is being a goalie more important than friendship?

Basketball Bats and Goof-Off Goalie are both 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Books of the Year.

Hero's brine will wake the forces of night. The warriors must be woken to fight. Or the world is razed, the blocks all gone. There is no more bond. Between Steves and Mobs. Creepers death is fastest, someone sobs. But Zombie death is scariest, another argues. The cow simply moos. No, Nether death is immediate. Someone says and begins to bet. Roleplay the Steves and Stevies and help save the world at Minecraft. GOOO MINECRAFT!!!! q~Violetclaw
