About the book
Lulu prefers playing basketball to playing with dolls. So when the boys won’t let her join their school-yard team, she decides to host a Basket Ball—where ball gowns are traded in for sequined basketball jerseys and high-top heels! Girls travel from all over the world to attend the ball, shooting hoops, showing off their skills, and forming a league of their own.
Bestselling and award-winning author Esmé Raji Codell has crafted an action-packed, slam-dunk picture book that will appeal to girlie girls and sporty girls alike.
The book includes a glossary of basketball terms.
