  •     My grandson loved this book on Christmas, but I haven't talked to him about its helpfulness. I read it before I gave it to him and I liked it a lot. I'm a librarain and I'm going to get it for my library.

  •     East for young readers. Inspirational. Great series. I like how it teaches to never give up and you can achieve your goals.

  •     We have three wrestlers in our house, and there aren't many fiction books about wrestling out there. Especially ones aimed at a younger audience. This book is very loved and read often in our house.

  •     Excellent

  •     My son loves this series of books. He enjoys sports and I enjoy seeing him read. This book and the other books in the series are not sports manuals. The books are fictional stories about kids who play one or more sports. My son is 8, enjoys any sport, tolerates reading, and ALL BOY. Get any book in this series if I just described your son! I chose this book because, the main character is black, he plays sports and the moral lessons are age appropriate.

  •     You could have placed any sport into the plot of this book. Its only about the boys speed. Nothing really about wrestling. Disappointed. I'll probably donate the book to my son's school library cause it is too cheap to try to return.

  •     Easy wrestling book for young kids to read.
