Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry comes alive on the basketball court. Feel the rough roundness of the ball. Celebrate the soaring freedom of the dunk. Savor the moment when all eyes focus on the long three-pointer.

In dynamic words and pictures, award-winning author Robert Burleigh and Caldecott Honor-artist Stephen T. Johnson capture the energy and passion that electrifies every moment in a game of hoops.

Synopsis:

Hoops is not a book about basketball--Hoops is basketball. How it feels to be a part of the motion, and a part of the moment-the longest moment-as the ball hangs in midair poised over the rim of the basket. The drama of the game . . . and of victory. A book about sport, poetry, friendship, teamwork. Feel it.
