Olympic Otis
  Never Sink Nine series #7
written by Gibbs Davis
Yearling, 1993
ages 7 to 10, ISBN 978-0553480788
 
Otis has to lose a few pounds and Walter is trying to earn a gold star in reading, his worst subject. It’s going to be harder than they thought. When they volunteer to help Grandpa Walt coach the Special Olympics, a girl named Anna shows them—and the rest of the Never Sink Nine—what it really takes to be a winner.
  Each book features a different team member (boy or girl), and a game. Teammates on and off-the-field, the Never Sink Nine deal with school, family life, and sportsmanship.  
  LETTER  
“You’ve definitely captured the flavor and excitement of an Area Competition. Even more important to me are the wonderful messages about Special Olympics that will be conveyed to your readers … Thank you for writing such a delightful and important story.”
