Reviews

The Horn Book Guide

“Play-by-play commentary laced with basketball lingo will score points with fans of both basketball and dinosaurs.” —The Horn Book Guide

School Library Journal

“The commentary is fast paced and exciting, the illustrations highlight basketball tradition and culture (cutting down the net, an audience showing team spirit), and the end is inspiring.” —School Library Journal

Kirkus Reviews

“Gott’s vividly colored illustrations are filled with energy—almost like sitting courtside…. Likely to be a slam dunk with both basketball and dinosaur fans…and football enthusiasts can look forward to the teams’ next match.” —Kirkus Reviews

Publishers Weekly

“This duo has a good thing going, and they don’t mess with their formula, offering the breathless rhymes, fouls and fast breaks, and down-to-the-final-second twists readers have come to expect.” —Publishers Weekly
