Button Down

By Anne Ylvisaker

“The universal story of a boy with a dream.” — Kirkus Reviews

Tugs Button’s scrawny cousin Ned can think of nothing but football. He has a few things going for him: he can catch and sometimes even throw, much to his surprise. And he’s got his eccentric grandpa Ike, who may have less get-up-and-go these days, but no shortage of down-home wisdom to pass along. From the author of The Luck of the Buttons comes another story about a sometimes hapless, always winning family that scores big points for humor and heart.

  • Now in paperback, the boy-friendly sequel to The Luck of the Buttons.
  • A football book.
  • Wonderful portrait of a community as well as a family; strong intergenerational themes, one of which is the loss of a beloved grandparent.
