Hes overweight, mouthy, and though hes bright, hes too lazy to do any work. The other kids always make fun of him because hes overweight, and Toby retaliates by making sure his team always loses. The one bright spot is Tobys new teacher, who is unlike any teacher Toby has had in the past. Mr. Walker expects the best of Toby in class and tries to persuade Toby to join his new cross-country running team. Is he crazy? Toby doesnt even like walking, let alone running. Does he really think he can make Toby into an athlete?
