Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Naomi Butler
Fifteen-year-old Rex Jones and his friends Dave and Carl are transported by Rex's mysterious cell phone into a soccer team that is headed for the championships—if they can avoid being killed by a bully on the opposing team. It is a huge soccer stadium, and they are wearing the uniforms of their favorite pro team! If they do not help their team win, the team's ranking will go down, but the captain of the other team is not one of Rex's fans. Will the guys score and help their team, or will they lose everything? This book is a high-interest, low-vocabulary reader that could be appropriated for middle through high school grades. The reinforced cover also helps to make this so, including the graphic-like design by Marcus Smith. The reviews and endorsements of Librarian Reviewer, Marci Peschke, and Reading Consultant, Mary Evenson, also make it useful for these ages. Copies should be placed at all levels in the schools. There are many supportive materials in the back including sections about the author and illustrator, a glossary, discussion questions, writing prompts, and lists of other works by Jonny Zucker, more Rex Jones adventures, and internet sites.
