About the Author

Cheryl Kim is an elementary school teacher from San Jose, California, and teaches second grade at an international school in Thailand. She received the SCBWI Kate Dopirak Craft and Community Award for her original manuscript for Wat Takes His Shot. When she's not teaching or writing, she enjoys watching professional basketball with her husband and sons. Visit her online at cherylkimbooks.com.

Nat Iwata has worked as an art director, 3D artist, illustrator, professor, and animator on everything from video games to children's books. His debut picture book, Sumo Joe, was called "a refreshing new take on the martial arts genre" by Kirkus Reviews. Like Wat, Nat is also Japanese American, about 5' 7" tall, but lousy at basketball. He lives in Washington state with his wife and three boys, all of whom serve as an endless source of encouragement and inspiration. You can visit him online at iwataillustration.com.

Reviews

"Text is well supported by Iwata's bold, appealing artwork, which alternates full-page illustrations with action-packed vignettes... Solid, stirring fare for sports fans." -- Kirkus Reviews
