Big Match Manager by Tom Sheldon


Big Match Manager by Tom Sheldon

Two challenges lie ahead: you must steer Hardwick City to the top of the league, while doing everything in your power to find your kidnapped top striker, Danny Knox, and bring his assailants to justice. As you progress through the book you will play out Hardwick City's remaining fixtures in the league, carefully selecting your team each week and using your 5 million pound budget to build the best squad you can. At the same time, you must use every ounce of your intelligence and cunning to piece together the clues that might just bring your team's best asset. Do you have what it takes to do both? This is brilliant fun for all budding football stars, and also has a great and pacy mystery to solve.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

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.
