Synopsis

Keeper's Ball by Rob Childs

Alex is always being left on the bench - in fact, he's sure he's only in the team at all because his dad helps out at his team's weekend matches. His teammates think he's just a useless jelly belly - but they get a shock when they see Alex has a hidden talent. That belly - and all the rest of him - turns out to be spectacularly good at stopping goals. Jelly Belly has found his place in the team! This is a sparkling football story about a determined underdog.

Reviews

An excellent story, not just for football fans: a highly recommended read The School Librarian Simply told, this story nevertheless leaves readers, and perhaps their wrong-headed dads, with something to think about TES This uplifting story realistically tackles the subject of bullying with humour Junior
