Charlie Fry is football mad. He sleeps wearing his team’s full kit and dreams of scoring the winning goal in an FA Cup final.

He plays football around the clock – at the park, on the way to school, at lunchtimes and even in his bedroom until his mum tells him off.

But Charlie has a problem: he can’t run very far. He has plenty of skill but his poorly lungs stop him from sprinting.

And as an 11-year-old planning to become the Golden Boot winner at the next World Cup, that’s a bit of an issue.

Then one day a freak accident presents Charlie with a unique goal-scoring gift – it means he can’t miss.

But can Charlie convince his local team Hall Park to give him the chance and use his new found skill to deadly effect?

Or will the nasty bullies from his school keep him stuck on the sidelines?

The Football Boy Wonder is a story about friendship, loyalty, believing in yourself, and, of course, football.

It is aimed at children aged 7-13. It looks at themes such as bullying, friendship, loyalty and the wonderful world of football.

A cracking football book – well written and captivating

I have been searching high and low for a well written football book. There are quite a few football books for young children but I’ve found them to be so badly written and not something that I’ve taken great pleasure in readin to my children. This is different; we were all captivated in the first chapter and that, I think, has a lot to do with the quality of the writing style. We also loved the fact that the hero of the story has his own health battles but in spite of these he is determined to play his favourite sport. We have just come to the end of the book and have immediately ordered the next in the series. We have recommended the book to our friends, who were also keen to find something just a little bit (a lot!) better than everything else that is out there. My daughter, aged 8, loved it just as much as her football crazy brother, aged 6. Please write more Martin, we can’t get to the end of the next one without buying the next one in the series!! Thank you for this amazing book.

A must read for young football fans

I bought this for my 11 year old son who absolutely loved it. I had been trying to bring the fun back into reading for him and I picked this for him as he’s a football fanatic. He loved it and wants me to buy the next one. He did mention though that there were a few typos, but that didn’t spoil it for him.

Good book!

Think my grandson will love this as he’s football mad. I like the fact that bullying is part of this story as he has been subjected to some of this. I hope it will help him to realise that bullies are certainly not clever, they’re mean and cowardly.

Thanks for the trip…

A heart-warming tale of friendship and triumph over adversity. An inspirational story for the young and a welcome nostalgia trip for the rest of us.
