Synopsis

Big Kicks by Bob Kolar

Will the biggest bear in town be any good at football? Find out in this bright, bouncy picture book. Biggle Bear lives in a quiet corner of a busy, little town. He enjoys being by himself, playing jazz and collecting stamps. Then one day there's a knock at his door. It's the local football team - they're a player down for an important match. Biggie's never played football before, but his new teammates assure him that being BIG is all that counts. Poor Biggie! Once he's on the pitch he realizes there's a lot more to football than just being big...And, as the final whistle blows, it's not a big kick but a little stamp - a postage stamp! - that saves the game...This is a debut picture book from an exciting new author/illustrator. It includes a fun story about football with very funky artwork.
