Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0439408997, Paperback)

Little Apple shoots and scores with these new early chapter books! Loosely based on NBA all-star Bob Lanier's childhood adventures, the series teaches valuable life lessons through amusing stories.

L'il Dobber has big feet. The other kids may laugh and call him nicknames, but L'il Dobber doesn't care. In fact, he's totally cool with his shoe size. He knows that one day he'll grow tall to match, and then his dreams of pro basketball will be solid.

In book #1, L'il Dobber and his friends all join together to help the new kid, Gan, find a cool nickname of his own. But when Gan gets stuck with a name he doesn't like, the gang's got trouble - until an unexpected twist turns everything around. Gan ends up a schoolyard hero, and he's found the best nickname of all.

"Hey L'il D! why do they call you 'feet?' Because L'il Dobber has got some big feet! And the kids at school think it's funny to tease him about it. L'il Dobber doesn't like that at all..."
