KIRKUS REVIEW

Knighthood in flour: this time Five-Yard, the whiz kid from Rock Greek, substitutes his hometown team when his professional teammates, hospitalized by a mysterious ailment, are unable to meet their opponents. Mole Mason burrows underground to the goal post; forgetting the name of the game, Slats Lumpe dribbles downfield; brother ""Feets"" kicks 92-yard field goals (but trips if he walks or runs). Ma Fuller again contributes her homespun advice (""Ma always says if a boy tells the truth and eats his turnip greens regular, everything'll be all right"") and Mushmouth Flang calls the plays. The Beverly hillbillies would appreciate this maize of corny capers.
