From Publishers Weekly
In a starred review PW said, "Anyone who has played basketball on a hot city playground or followed it courtside will respond to the sensuous, tactile tone of this poetic description of the game.Marvelous pastel drawings of teenagers on the court paired with the book's design turn up the heat." Ages 5-8.

Grade 2 Up. A handful of kids, a neighborhood court, and a ball are the elements that spring explosively to life in this ode to the game that captures the energy, the elation, the sheer poetry of basketball.
