KIRKUS REVIEW

What to do when your little (taller) sister not only runs faster, ""jumps higher, and can really throw a basketball,"" she wants to try out for your team besides? Naturally, Flyers captain Jeremy bridles and tries to bribe backyard whiz Melanie off. But, come the crunch: ""she is just the player the Flyers need to be the best team on the block."" The illustrations are a little too cutesy and posturing to be just what the book needs--a snappier, more natural comic style would have suited the story better. But the situation has built-in appeal and the text bounces fight along.
