This anthology of short, autobiographical stories has kids' book authors telling tales of their own real-life athletic incidents. Some are funny, some are serious, and some put their own twist on the whole "sports" concept. Eight stories from both "boys" and "girls" include tales of dodgeball, wrestling, track, softball, and ballet. Kids will relate to the struggling non-jocks as well as the athletes who take the trophy home.
