Product Description

Jack Lewis is short. REALLY short. So short that Mr Bullock, the St Saviour’s football coach, doesn’t want him on the team. But when Mr Willis discovers Jack’s ‘footballing brain’ and Jack’s mum steps in with a few tips, it looks as if the School Cup may be just the beginning! With exuberant, lively story-telling from favourite author Ian Whybrow, accompanied by Tony Ross’s delightful illustrations, this is a funny, fast-paced and accessible treat for little football fans.

Ian Whybrow is the best-selling author of over 100 children’s books, and is best known for his much-loved Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs books. He is now published in 27 languages in 28 countries!

Before he took up writing full time, Ian spent most of his working life in secondary education, mostly as Head of English and Drama and later as Head of Sixth Form.

Ian’s books are full of inventive and original humour and always writes with adult readers as well as youngsters in mind. “I loved being read to as a child,” he says. “And I loved the sense that my mother and father were enjoying themselves too. For me, that’s the acid test for any good book -that there’s something in it for everyone to enjoy.’

Apart from his wife and daughters, his passions – in no particular order – are: Herefordshire, where he retreats to write in a deeply rural Victorian villa; digging; walking with friends; swimming; cycling (especially in France); the poet Stevie Smith; the theatre; books, films and hedgehogs.
