“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.


Anne Ylvisaker is the author of The Luck of the Buttons as well as Dear Papa and Little Klein. Formerly of Iowa and Minnesota, Anne Ylvisaker now lives in California.
