Summary

DOUBLE THE TROUBLE, DOUBLE THE FUN. Is it a game, set, match for Henry?

Henry wants to win the doubles tennis trophy more than anything. He knows he'd good enough, but he's not sure his partner Rocky is. The advantage goes to new readers as they follow Henry as he helps Rocky train and, at the same time, works on his history project. Can Henry serve up an ace on and off the court?

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Henry knows that he is a better tennis player than his doubles partner, Rocky. But after Rocky misses an easy shot to end a match, Henry can't stop himself from yelling at his friend. The tables are turned when Henry disappoints his academically gifted friend, Jazz, with his part of their history project. Like other books from the Gym Shorts series, this offers useful life lessons within a story in which five friends share a love of sports and a bond of friendship that weathers some realistic trials. Attractive line drawings enhance the appeal of this beginning chapter book.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist"
