The Sports Pages, the third volume in Jon Scieszka's Guys Read Library of Great Reading, features ten short stories guaranteed to put you in the ring, under the basket, and right behind home plate.
From fiction to nonfiction, from baseball to mixed martial arts and everything in between, these are a collection of stories about the rush of victory and the crush of defeat on and off the field.
Authors include Dustin Brown, James Brown, Joseph Bruchac, Chris Crutcher, Tim Green, Dan Gutman, Gordon Korman, Chris Rylander, Anne Ursu, and Jacqueline Woodson, with illustrations by Dan Santat.
Ideal for reluctant juvenile readers, this collection of short stories looks to engage in different narrative voices from some of the most talented children's and YA writers today. Complemented with fabulous illustrations, this midway genre between KidsLit and YA is a great read for kids between 8 and 12 years.
