Wasim the Wanderer by Chris Ashley


Wasim the Wanderer by Chris Ashley

Wasim is trying out his football skills for Teamwork 10,000, which might just lead to a trial with the Woodley Wanderers! But how can he play his best football with Robert Bailey lurking around every corner at school...and then at the practice ground too?


Wasim is a great new character, this time he wants to be a footballer. www.bettybookmark.co.uk A character that primary school children and teachers will recognise and respond to with pleasure... the blend of compulsive sporting drama with commonplace issues make ideal group readers for lower juniors. -- Kate Agnew Guardian A tale of triumph for the little outsider who manages to prove his talent.
