The Lovereading4Kids comment

The latest instalment in Dominique Demers's popular Adventures of Miss Charlotte series, The New Football Coach, brilliantly illustrated by Tony Ross, is a marvellous tale about believing in yourself and beating the odds.

Synopsis

The New Football Coach by Dominique Demers

Miss Charlotte - the new coach of a children's football team - has some odd methods to prepare them for the big match. She decides to teach them to lose! And to have fun. Incredibly, it seems to work, as the kid who was always useless on the pitch suddenly scores a screamer in practice. But will their hopes of victory be dashed when the ambitious star player decides to join the other team?

Reviews

A modern-day Mary Poppins who has charmed her way into the hearts of hundreds of thousands of Quebec children ... Like all Demers's stories, this one The New Teacher is fabulously penned, imaginative, relevant and funny. -- Michelle Lalonde The Gazette
