Synopsis: Having been the center for jokes by all due to his size, Shrimp is initially relieved when Slobodan moves into town and becomes the new joke, until he comes to realize that Slobodan does not deserve the abuse either and they begin to form a special friendship.
From Booklist: Gr. 2^-5. Filomeno Pazzalini, an Italian American boy living in an inner city, wants to be included in neighborhood pickup basketball games, but the other guys think he's too short to play. They've dubbed him Shrimp and won't even give him a chance. Things change when a new boy, Slobodan Vladic (Slob-o) moves into the neighborhood and becomes the target of the jokes. Although the pressure is off Shrimp, he is sensitive and clearheaded enough to know how bad put-downs feel. He also recognizes that the strange boy, who came from what was once Yugoslavia, is not much different from Shrimp himself. Orgel deftly develops the theme and convincingly portrays Shrimp's evolving character in this installment in the West Side Kids chapter-book series. Shelley Townsend-Hudson
