When Dewey London and Bundy Neel see the poster about the new summer soccer league, they’re psyched. Then they read the fine print and learn about the logo contest: Whoever draws the best team logo will be named captain of his or her team and see the logo reproduced on team T-shirts. Dewey has won prizes for his drawings, but the thought of being captain makes his stomach do flip-flops. Bundy, on the other hand, would make a great captain, but he can’t draw worth beans. So Dewey has to decide: Should he not enter the contest so Bundy can win and be named captain, or enter an deal with his stomach every day for the rest of summer?
