Filled with multiple-choice questions, true-or-false quizzes, crosswords, word scrambles, and drawing games, this will test every young basketball fan's knowledge. Questions cover a wide range, allowing devoted hoopsters and curious rookies to earn big points while learning the difference between a lay-up and an alley-oop. Lively line drawings illustrate the text, and fun facts, jokes, and strange tales from the basketball world provide extra amusement.
