Every boy's dream will be fulfilled in this wonderful book, about a completely football-obsessed boy called William. If you know someone with the football bug then this could be the book for him.


Football Fever by Alan Durant and Kate Leake

William has caught football fever. He eats, talks and dreams football, and he's driving his sister crazy. Then one day William's dad takes him to a football club for the first time. The match kicks off, the score is nil-nil and William has the ball. Will he score and be hero for the day? And who'll be next to catch the football bug?
