H.O.R.S.E.

By Christopher Myers
Illustrated by Christopher Myers

H.O.R.S.E. is a celebration of the sport of basketball, the art of trash-talking, and the idea that what's possible is bounded only by what you can dream.

One day at the basketball court, two kids, a familiar challenge—H.O.R.S.E.? But this isn't your grandmother's game of hoops. Not when a layup from the other side of the court, standing on one foot, with your eyes closed is just the warm-up. Around the neighborhood, around the world, off Saturn's rings . . . the pair goes back and forth. The game is as much about skill as it is about imagination.

  • Readers of all ages will easily identify with the delightful cast of people, monsters, and animals featured in these charming stories. Just right for read-aloud, new readers, reluctant readers, and Chapter One programs.
