A unique blend of fantasy and thriller and myths and legends but grounded firmly in real present-day life. It was winner of the 2000 Blue Peter Award 'book i couldn't put down category'. With twists and turns virtually on every page you're left gasping for breath but wanting more.

For Phoenix it's easy. He hates his new school where he is bullied. He's embarrassed by his computer geek dad. But when he logs onto The Legendeer, the computer game his dad is working on, he can be a hero. The trouble is it turns out The Legendeer is more than just a game. It has a mind of its own. Play it if you dare.

Alan Gibbons Q+A
If you could choose a football dream team – which players would you choose?
Peter Schmeichel, Gary Neville, Paolo Maldini, George best, Bobby Charlton, Duncan Edwards, Ryan Giggs, Diego Maradonna, Pele, Franz Beckenbauer and Bobby Moore. What a great side!
Which sports person would you most like to meet and why?
Muhammad Ali. He was quite simply The Greatest. If I had a tardis and could time travel I’d like to meet George Best when he was very young so as to tell him to stay away from the booze.
Which were the best football matches you’ve ever seen? And which was the best sports event?
The 1966 World Cup Final when England best West Germany and the 1970 World Cup Final when Brazil beat Italy. Then there was the night Muhammad Ali beat George Foreman in the Rumble in the Jungle and won back the world heavy weight boxing title.
Do you think any British team will ever get the World Cup final again?
My head says “no” but my heart says “yes.” Wayne Rooney to score the winner in South Africa.
