Product Details

Praise

Short chapters, simple yet meticulous language, a wholesome feel and the universal story of a boy with a dream combine to give this one widespread appeal.
—Kirkus Reviews

Those who were happily immersed in the small-town comedy and drama in Ylvisaker’s Buttons debut will settle right back into the leisurely rhythm of Goodhue, Iowa.

Ylvisaker has returned to the “down on their luck” Button family she introduced in The Luck of the Buttons (Candlewick, 2011) with the introduction of Ned.

At the same time, the author conveys the importance of a supportive family and loyal friends
—School Library Journal

This book provides a great opportunity to introduce sports fans to historical fiction.
