A Dangerous Game of Football
A Dangerous Game of Football
  • Description

How can a game of Football be dangerous? Jack Burnside is about to find out which just might prove rather difficult if your only ally is a cantankerous camel. Barbara Spencer follows the success of her first children's book Scruffy.

Jack, who shares his name with the soccer superstar, Jack Burnside, is a keen footballer.When his best mate, Saleem, fails to return after a visit to his home, there is little Jack can do about it, until he receives a mysterious parcel in the post. It takes him on a journey to a land ruled by sun and peopled with tyrants, sorcerers and giant crows. Now he must find Saleem, coach a team of boys for a football match – and stay alive!

Barbara Spencer enjoyed success with her children’s book, Scruffy, a charming story about a dog, promoting the responsibilities of pet ownership through a funny yet heart-rending, tale of a puppy abandoned. Schoolchildren, as young as five, created the illustrations through a competition in which six-hundred children took part. Barbara Spencer lives in Somerset.
