Snow Goalie

Written by Sophie Smiley

Illustrated by Michael Foreman

Part of the Bobby/Charlton Series

Snow Goalie Synopsis

Charlie and her brothers are in the final of the local five-a-side tournament, and they need to practise hard. But when it snows heavily overnight, their plans soon change. Charlie's brother, Bobby, is marooned in the snow and she must attempt a daring adventure to rescue him. But with the team reunited once more, how will they manage to play on the frozen pitch, never mind win the game?

Snow Goalie Press Reviews

The story is peppered with plentiful football references as well as with a few well placed jokes; it will be popular with anyone who likes jokes and/or football, and is an easy enough read not to deter the weaker readers. It should find a happy place in any classroom. -- Rudolf Loewenstein OP * The School Librarian *
