Synopsis

There's nothing ordinary about basketball practice when Meggie and her friends are involved, especially after Miss Peachtree takes over the gym for her dance lessons. When Jimmy refuses to dance with anybody but his pet boa constrictor, mayhem becomes the name of the game! Yes, Jimmy's boa is back-this time with a waltzing poodle and a herd of bouncing rabbits. Readers have courtside seats to witness the fancy, super-funny teamwork of Meggie, her friends, and even the stuffy Miss Peachtree. And with Jimmy's boa involved, basketball will never be the same!

Fourteen years have passed since Meggie and Jimmy went to SeaLand (in Big Splash Birthday Bash), but their exploits are just as popular as ever. Trinka Hakes Noble and Steven Kellogg have won many honors for this joyous, silly series, and now they have created another hilariously chaotic episode-one that's sure to have both basketball and boa fans cheering.
