About the Book

Touchdown Timmy is a middle-grade fiction novel for boys and girls between the ages of nine and thirteen.  Eleven-year-old Timmy Tripp has just moved into Morgan, Tennessee with his parents and older sister, Laura.  One of Timmy’s biggest obstacles as he enters the sixth grade in a new middle school is the fact that he’s extremely short for his age.  But little does anybody in Morgan realize that Timmy also possesses an unbelievable talent when it comes to playing football.  When the pint-sized boy decides to try out for the school’s football team, his mother is worried sick and his schoolmates simply tease and laugh at him.  But amazing things happen when young Timmy Tripp picks up a football, and the entire town comes to realize that the boy has a talent unmatched by many.  Touchdown Timmy is sure to provide hours of non-stop action and adventure for any child, even those who are not football fans.
