'Tim tries out for his school team but keeps getting pushed off the ball and doesn't make the side. The coach tells him he's just not big enough to cut it with the other kids. Devastated, Tim tries some unconventional ways to make himself taller with not-very-successful but hilarious results! He finds the best thing to do is practise hard with his brothers and friends. Confronted with a tricky situation, Tim comes to realise that although he isn't as big and tall as the other kids, he can jump really high. And because he's been practising so much, he has better skills and shooting than the other kids. Will it be enough to earn him a place in the team?' (Publication summary)
