Description



About the Book



Eight-year-old EllRay Jakes, the shortest kid in class and still chosen last at recess, hones his basketball skills with Mr. Havens and earns the respect of his third-grade classmates.



Book Synopsis



EllRay Jakes finally grows up (a little) by playing basketball in this ninth book in the series.

There's a new game in town--basketball! Or in Ellray's case, pre-basketball. Coach Havens has all the third graders dribbling, passing, and shooting, and he's quick to compliment EllRay's skills. No one else seems to notice them, however, and as 'the shortest kid in the class, ' EllRay is still chosen last for teams at recess. What's a short guy gotta do to get noticed When EllRay comes up with a plan that involves the off-limits teacher's lounge, everyone does a double take!
