Unlike the professional basketball player for whom he is named, Shaquille O'Neal is anything but a whiz on the court. Because he is small for his age, Shaq is always picked last and seems to spend more time in the nurse's office than playing games. After a conversation with the nurse, however, Shaq's world is turned around as she point out his strength on the court. Speedier than a Meteor is a delightful story about the underdog and can be used to teach students how to identify narrative point of view and accurately retell a story.
