Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Mac could not keep his mouth shut. As the Cougar’s goalie he continually told his teammates what to do. Some appreciated his commentary, others did not. Cartoons started appearing in the school’s weekly paper, all of which were making fun of Mac, although no names were used. Mac was determined to find out who was drawing the cartoons and started blaming his friends. Mac was not sensitive to other people’s feelings, although his friends were sensitive to his feelings--and Mac always believed he was right. One boy who was always getting slammed by Mac remained loyal to his teammates, although he was accused unjustly by Mac. Soccer fans might enjoy the play-by-play descriptions in this fast read which is part of “The New Matt Christopher Sports Library,” but nothing is learned about true friendships. Mac never grasps the importance of listening to other people and the cartoons are more cruel than funny. Reviewer: Janet L. Rose
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5When a cartoon appears in the school newspaper making fun of Mac's "motor mouth," the boy tries to find out who is responsible. This is one of Christopher's typical play-by-play sports stories with an upbeat ending and simple vocabulary and sentence structure. However, the plot is not particularly memorable. Mac has the bravado and confident personality often necessary for a successful goalie, but with all of his bragging, readers will wonder how he has any friends. Conversation between characters doesn't ring true and slang such as "You look spiffy" or the reference to a girl getting all "dolled up" for a dance sounds like phrases from the `40s or `50s rather than the `90s. Consider this for purchase only if more sports stories by Christopher are needed.Blair Christolon, Prince William Library, Manassas, VA

    Very good

    I liked the description that this author put into were the goalie dived. I myself am a keeper, and I feel the same pressure this character is standing in the penalty box, petrified of the crowd.

    Mac

    Mac is the best goalie on his soccer team. He's always talking to his teammates and then a cartoonist puts a picture of him in the school newspaper. Will Mac ever find out who did it? Read this book to find out who did it.
