In illustrated diary format, the hilarious tale of a boy whose dad tries to turn him into a track and field starMarcus Atkinson is nine years old, and good at math and computer games. Not sports! His dad's latest crazy idea is for him to try track and field. Even worse, it's not just "track" and "field"—there are 10 events! If he can't master one sport, how can his dad think he'll be good at 10?
