Reviews

If you are working with KS3 students who are reluctant readers - but have a clear enthusiasm towards football - then this series of books should engage, dealing with issues that are very important to young lives. -- UKEdChat
The concise style will appeal to children as I often find that reluctant readers are put off by weightier tones. The yellow tint and careful font choice are also thoughtful touches. There is a glossary at the back and a bonus section with questions to aid comprehension. All in all, a great choice for those reluctant readers in the classroom. -- K and O: Bonkers About Books
