This is the first in the "Kickers" series all about soccer. Boys at my school are already really enjoying this book. It's about Ben and his friends in grade 4. The chapters alternate between action on the soccer field as part of a new team and action at recess on the four-square court. And throughout, his nemesis Mark is bigger, stronger, and arrogant enough to drive a boy mad. Ben wants to win at everything he does, but his team can't win a game as long as Mark hogs the ball. Will they ever learn to play as a team? Illustrated.

Introducing a soccer series for new readers
Kickers #1

Nine-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.
