Praise

"Tate's dynamic digital pictures capture the players' perseverance as they prove instrumental in integrating pro basketball and score legions of fans, and a comprehensive timeline rounds out the book.... An enthusiastic tribute to a groundbreaking team."—Publishers Weekly
"[Author] Slade has done careful, thorough research, easily engaging young readers as they learn about the Globetrotters' groundbreaking history. Veteran illustrator Tate creates constant movement, visually underscoring the title with dynamic (sometimes impossible) perspectives and basketballs caught in stop-motion fashion as they fly across the court.... From beginning to end, fans will feel connected to the dynamic style of the Globetrotters and how they influenced American history."—Kirkus Reviews
"Dynamic.... This well-researched, accessible picture book makes this story bounce off the page."—School Library Journal
"Peppy.... Tate's illustrations, done digitally in his usual big-hearted-caricature style, are an ideal match for the subject."—The Horn Book
