The character in the book decides to serve his country instead of playing Pro ball. When he returns from war, his injuries prevent him from playing and he requires a cane to walk. When he first returns from war, he finds it hard to watch the game, but later he enjoys being a part of the game as a spectator.
Fortunately, we'd never had to explain the concept of war to our son. (He doesn't watch the news and we have no immediate relations serving in the military). It's a little bit of a sad story, but has good lessons. My son continues to choose it as a bedtime book. And once we were over the initial surprise that we had to answer questions about combat - my husband and I are happy to read it to him.
Very nice illustrations and about a 5 minute read.
