Introducing a soccer series for new readersKickers #1Nine-year-old Ben is brand-new to soccer, but he’s a good athlete and knows he’ll do well on the Bobcats, his team in the local Kickers soccer league. If he can only work around his obnoxious teammate Mark, the ball hog, Ben is sure he’ll score his first goal. But Coach Patty, and Ben’s own teammates, show him a little something about teamwork. And suddenly it dawns on him: he’s a ball hog, too. Can he change his ways before the Bobcats lose their shot at the Kickers play-offs?Award-winning sports novelist Rich Wallace introduces the Kickers soccer series, filled with lively black-and-white art and fast-paced, on-the-field action.
Rich Wallace is the author of several books set in Sturbridge, Pennsylvania, including Wrestling Sturbridge, an ALA Top Ten Best Book for Young Adults; Shots on Goal; Losing Is Not an Option; and Playing Without the Ball.
