BASKETBALL SPARKPLUG

After two baseball stories, Matt Christopher has written a book about basketball which is good bait for the slow reader. Very easy reading, it uses a limited vocabulary, is easy to follow and is set in fairly large type with content matter of high interest to boys in elementary grades. Kim O'Connor's teammates on the Arrows basketball team can't resist the chance to tease him about his singing lessons in Mrs. Kelsey's choir. Often his two interests conflict. Though Kim would rather participate in basketball practise, for his mother's sake he attends choir rehearsals. Kim's persistence in both fields is rewarded when the Arrows win the Small Fry Championship from their rival, the Comets, with surprise help from Mrs. Kelsey and the choir.
