About the Book

This is a book for boys, boys who love basketball. It is a story about a twelve year old boy who did the impossible, thanks to a pair of magic shoes.

The story takes place in the projects of Memphis, Tennessee. Growing up in the projects of Memphis is hard, but it can also be fun! Every boy plays basketball, and every boy dreams of becoming an NBA star. This includes a little boy called Little A. However, Little A had a secret. You see, Little A was given a pair of magic shoes; shoes once worn by Mr. Boom-Boom. And this is what the story is all about. It is about a young boy, Little A, an old black man, Mr. Boom-Boom, and the story he tells about a pair of magic shoes.

As you read this story, just follow the magic shoes. They’ll take you to the end. They will also take you back to the beginning of a very magical story.
Mr. Chip

About the Author

His students call him “Mr. Chip.” He has taught in the inner-city of Memphis for over fifteen years. Mr. Chip has a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Education. However, Mr. Chip will be the first person to tell you that teaching is not about “Degrees.” Teaching is a learning experience between the teacher and the students. If the teacher is not learning, then the students are not learning.

Mr. Chip’s specialty is working with inner-city boys who do not like to read. Reading is the foundation of all knowledge, and Mr. Chip has made it his mission to develop a book style, and story line, that will make it fun for non-readers to read.

Once reading becomes fun, the boy becomes a reader!
