The Lovereading4Kids comment

Terrific comedy adventures with a footballing twist that are sure to be loved by boys in particular as well as reluctant readers. These books show that mischievousness doesn’t necessarily mean naughty! The kids are part of an anything-but-ordinary football team. For starters each kid has wings, they’ve been booted out of heaven for bad behaviour by the Angel Gabriel and back on earth they must stay out of trouble or they’ll never be allowed back. Difficult when you have wings!

The first two in the series, Classroom Defenders and Zombies in the House are short novels and perfect for 7 year olds and upwards although older boys will equally enjoy them for their interest level.


Demon Defenders: Zombies in the House by Jake Lancing

Still stuck on Earth, Alex and the gang need to find something to redeem themselves with so they can return to their positions as the top junior football team in Heaven. Perhaps hospital radio might be the way to go? But there is something very odd about these particular patients.

About the Author

Jake Lancing lives in Somerset. When not writing about adventure-seeking, football-playing angels, he spends his time avoiding work, listening to very uncool music, growing his hair and helping the government to catch spies*. He jumped out of a plane once because it seemed like a good idea at the time.

* One of those things might not be entirely true.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
