The Lovereading4Kids comment

For football mad families this is essential reading as are the previous two stories featuring Charlie and his little brother Bobby. Their mum is so footie mad that she gives yellow cards instead of a ticking off when her children are naughty. As a consequence the family make a great team. The love and affection shown between them all whatever life throws at them including the fact that little Bobby suffers from Down’s Syndrome is a wonder to behold and an education in understanding. Michael Foreman’s illustrations perfectly complement the entertaining story. 6 - 9 year olds will be the book’s core audience but could be read aloud to younger children too.

Synopsis

Team Trouble by Sophie Smiley

Charlie has a football mad family - her mother gives a yellow card rather than a ticking off. Usually the family make a great team, so when her thirteen-year-old brother Semi starts to get grumpy and choses not to join in, it is a great shock. But her parents seem to know exactly what is going on.

Reviews

Simple and unpretentious, this novel manages to convey the warmth and humour of family life * School Librarian *
