Kickers: The Ball Hog

“This is a brand new series from sports novelist Rich Wallace for a much younger audience featuring lively black and white art, friendship, teamwork, and most of all, SOCCER! These books follow nine-year-old Ben as he joins the Bobcats, a coed fourth-grade soccer team and learns about sports and life.” —Random Acts of Reading review

You can buy Rich’s books at your local bookstore, though a website for independent booksellers, via theJunior Library Guild, and through the usual big online sellers like Amazon.
