Summary
  • Patty hits the court. A fantastic and fun basketball series by Australian Olympian and NBA star Patty Mills that will entertain young readers, inspire kids to achieve their goals through sport, and showcase Patty's pride in his Indigenous heritage. Sport-mad Patty Mills is a star on the footy field, an ace at athletics, a ripper at rugby. So when he tries out for basketball, it should be a breeze... Patty expects to be a great basketballer straight away, just like his uncle Danny. But he soon discovers there's whole lot more to the game than just shooting hoops. He's got a lot to learn, on and off the court - and it's going to take plenty of practice. Will he and his school team be good enough to get into the finals?
  • Patty and the shadows. There's a new team in town: the Shadows. And sport-mad Patty Mills has something to prove... Tyson is Patty's arch-rival. And when he gives Patty a hard time about his people, it really hurts. But it makes Patty more determined than ever. Playing for the Shadows, Patty and his friends have a chance to shine - and show that Indigenous kids can do anything. After a huge improvement, they make the grand final. And the result will come down to the final seconds of the game
  • Patty takes charge. Through lots of hard work, Patty's skills have improved out of sight. And he's invited to step it up in a big basketball tournament. Even though he'll miss out on time in his beloved Torres Strait, playing in a major competition in Sydney is an opportunity too exciting to pass up. Patty starts to think he might have a future in basketball. But an injury puts it all at risk. Could Patty's dream be over before it's begun?
