Game day by Tiki Barber( Book )
6 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 2,468 libraries worldwide
Twin brothers Tiki and Ronde Barber share a story of perseverance and teamwork from when they were growing up and playing for the Cave Springs Vikings before they became NFL superstars. Ronde and Tiki are a team. They are twins, they are each other's best friends and biggest fans, and they play on the same football team, the Cave Spring Vikings. Ronde is #21 and Tiki is #22, always side by side. Tiki has had seven long touch-down runs this season, and Ronde is proud of his brother, but he can't help feeling a little down when Tiki gets all the glory. If Ronde hadn't been leading the way with his blocks, Tiki wouldn't have been clear to score. Ronde thinks nobody notices the guy who blocks; they only notice the guy who scores. Will the day ever come when Ronde will get his chance? Written by two NFL superstars, this story of perseverance and teamwork will inspire. Barry Root's glowing illustrations bring to life all the excitement and energy of a great game and a team working together

Two cool cows by Toby Speed( Book )
8 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 909 libraries worldwide
Two adventurous cows jump to the moon, where they find many dozens of other cows enjoying themselves. Millie and Maude are two cool cows who fly to the moon and back in a night wearing the Huckabuck children's new black boots. "Speedy gleefully and rhythmically subverts the nursery classic. And Root plays along zestily, coloring the Huckabuck farm with quiet, pastel tints and the moon with rich, jazzy tones -- some of which 'return' with the cows. "This tales needs some dynamic art, and Root comes through with motion-filled spreads featuring two black-and-white, shades-wearing cows. He catches all the humor, too; each out-of-this-world picture is a smile provoker."
