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. (Oct.)
