Ilene Cooper's fourth story of a boy and his beagle takes Bobby and Lucy into the wild playing fields of grade-school soccer.

Every kid loves soccer, right? Not Bobby. He likes to watch sports, but he doesn't really like to play them. He'd rather play with his beagle puppy, Lucy.

Even Lucy is better than Bobby at moving a soccer ball down the field!

There are some things you might have forgotten.” The coach took them over to the field. It was a large rectangle, with a circle in the middle and a goal at either end. “The most important skill you need to play soccer is good kicking,” Coach Morris said in a booming voice. “Kicking is what moves the ball from one

He still wasn’t sure how he felt about a new baby coming, but he didn’t want his parents to miss out on one just because of Lucy. “I don’t think a chewed glove ruins our chances,” Mrs. Quinn said. “But it sure was embarrassing.” Bobby nodded. Even he had been embarrassed. “Lucy can’t be acting up like this when the
