Swish! L'il Dobber shoots and scores — he's a basketball star in training. In fact, the only thing L'il Dobber and his friends like more than shooting hoops at recess is... shooting hoops after school! They're always tossing that ball around in the neighborhood. It's a lot of fun — especially since they're friends with everyone on the block. Everyone, that is, except Mr. Palmer. Mr. Palmer, aka the Grouch, lives next door to L'il D, and he's always causing trouble. It seems like he'd do anything to spoil their fun! Even take their basketball away...?<br />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.
