Little Croker by Joe O'Brien'How do you play every game?' yelled Mick. 'Like the All-Ireland Final!' cheered the whole dressing room. Danny Wilde wants one thing more than anything else in the world and that's to get his GAA team, Littlestown Crokes, to the top of the League. With the help of his dad, their coach, Mick, he knows they can win. Things go wrong, when Danny stays with his horrible uncle and aunt, who know nothing about GAA, can the Crokes can make it after all? Danny comes up with a brilliant plan, but needs a whole lot of help to make it work! This is the first title in a fantastic New Sports Fiction series.
'One young sports obsessive I know sped through the story ... praised the back-story.'
'Young GAA fans everywhere will want to get their hands on a copy of Little Croker.'
'a sharply executed tale with plenty of humourous characterisations and some serious storylines thrown in'
'O'Brien is good at conjuring up the atmosphere of the GAA and the importance that a club has in a local community. Will appeal to football mad boys and girls'
'a good, intelligent, contemporary Irish read'
