Description

Sam Campbell's school team, the Laggan Lairds, always loses. When someone suggests that their name be the Laggan Lard Butts, Sam thinks the team should change its name. What is a Laird anyway? The basketball coach agrees, and soon the whole school is involved in an election for a new team name. Sam and his friends nominate the name Lard Butts. When the basketball team starts winning games after a warm-up cheer of "Go Lard Butts!" it seems the Lard Butt campaign might actually win the election.

To all the Lard Butts in the world!
Author Note
I had just finished a presentation at Laggan public school and was fielding questions from the students. One of them asked me, “What would you write about if you were a teacher here? I looked over at the mura l on the wall of the gym—it said, The Laggan Lairds. Right there, in front of an audience of one hundred kids, I outlined the plot that became this novel. Go, Lard Butts!
