Football Daft by Rob Childs

Brain Draper is the butt of many jokes at school about his difficulties with reading, but Luke knows he's also a talented goal-scorer. Can Luke persuade his friend to pluck up his confidence and show everyone his skill on the pitch? This is an another football feast from today's best-known writer of soccer fiction.


Rob Child's love for football is obvious and sincere. I'm so glad he writes and gives me yet more material to offer my book-hating boys * Books for Keeps *
