In 1929 Iowa, Tugs Button''s scrawny cousin Ned wants to be a football player, and although his size and a bully who keeps him and his friends out of their games stand in the way, Ned''s eccentric Grandpa Ike and his own ability may give him his chance.
From the Publisher:
As football fever hits Goodhue, Iowa, Ned Button steps into the lineup in a funny new adventure about a small-town family living in 1929.

Ever since local boy Lester Ward got drafted by the University of Iowa Hawkeyes, Tugs Button's scrawny cousin Ned can think of nothing but football. Sure, Lester's younger bully of a brother is determined to keep Ned and his gang from ever getting near a real pickup game. But Ned has a few things going for him: he can catch and sometimes even throw, much to his surprise. And he's got his eccentric grandpa Ike, who may have less get-up-and-go these days, but no shortage of down-home wisdom to pass along-like that being a football star is less about being big and more about playing as a team and honing your strategy, and that having friends and family in your corner is a bigger prize than a lucky football will ever be. From the author of The Luck of the Buttons comes another story about a sometimes hapless, always winning family that scores big points for humor and heart.Tugs Button's cousin Ned wants to be a football player, and although his size and a bully who keeps him and his friends out of their games stand in the way, Ned's eccentric Grandpa Ike and his own ability may give him his chance.
