Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Our school teams always lost. It didn't matter what sport-basketball, soccer, baseball, volleyball or hockey -we sucked at them all. I'd been on all our school teams every year since grade six and we'd never had a winning team. Forget winning team, we'd hardly ever had a win.

Sam Campbell's school team, the Laggan Lairds, always loses. When someone suggests that their name be the Laggan Lard Butts, Sam thinks the team should change its name. What is a Laird anyway? The basketball coach agrees, and soon the whole school is involved in an election for a new team name. Sam and his friends nominate the name Lard Butts. When the basketball team starts winning games after a warm-up cheer of Go Lard Butts it seems the Lard Butt campaign might actually win the election.

Eric Walters is the bestselling author of many books for juveniles and young adults including the Orca Soundings: Grind, Juice and Overdrive.

Synopsis:

Sam Campbell's school basketball team, the Laggan Lairds, always loses. When someone suggests that their name be the Laggan Lard Butts, Sam thinks the team should change its name. Soon the whole school is involved in an election for a new team name.

Synopsis:

With the whole school clamoring to change the boring name of the school's basketball team, class clown Sam starts a campaign to have them called the "Lard Butts" which, even after a few great victories, begins to take on a certain charm of its own that surprises students and teachers alike. Simultaneous.
