One day at the basketball court, two kids, a familiar challenge--H.O.R.S.E.?

But this isn't your grandmother's game of hoops.

Not when a layup
from the other side of the court
standing on one foot
with your eyes closed is just the warm-up.

Around the neighborhood, around the world, off Saturn's rings, the pair goes back and forth.

The game is as much about skill as it is about imagination.

A slam dunk from multi-award-winning author/illustrator Christopher Myers, H.O.R.S.E. is a celebration of the sport of basketball, the art of trash-talking, and the idea that what's possible is bounded only by what you can dream.
