Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"In this rousing picture book, Macy and Collins take readers to the (very) early days of women's basketball through the eyes of Agnes Morley, who offers a play-by-play account of an 1896 game between Stanford and Berkeley — the first ever between two women's basketball teams. Agnes's first-person account is laced with information about how the game was played at the time, as well as her confident inner thoughts ('I think that a lady can be tough and strong as well as refined and polite'). Whether Agnes is wrangling with a calf on her family's ranch or diving for a loose ball, her determination shines through in Collins's dynamic, painterly digital spreads. Ages 6 — 10. (Mar.)"
