The Real Slam Dunk

The Real Slam Dunk Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Marcus Robinson is psyched! Tomorrow, his class is going on a field trip to a professional basketball arena to meet the one and only Jason Carter, Marcus's hero. Marcus usually ignores everything except for basketball, but this time he studies for hours to win the math contest-for the prize of being the official Jason Carter greeter! But when Jason tells Marcus some things he didn't expect to hear about professional basketball, Marcus is confused. He thought that all he'd ever need in life was basketball. Thanks to Jason, Marcus is about to learn the meaning of a real slam dunk.

Synopsis:

Marcus is excited. His class is about to meet a professional basketball player--just what Marcus plans on being when he grows up. But his hero says some surprising things about school and sports. Illustrations.
