Amazon DescriptionOne 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.
A 2013 Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award Honor Book
One Potato Review
Trash talk taken to poetic extremes: one baller even proposes dunking with his tongue. With Myers’ typically thrilling urban architecture cobbled together from drawings and photos and (possibly) hallucinations, plus a move called the Magellan that gives new meaning to around-the-world.
