Children's Literature
Oscar is bursting with excitement because he has been chosen to play on his town's soccer team. Oscar's biggest fan is his hip Grandpa, who encourages his grandson's dream of becoming a real soccer star. The young boy is dismayed when he discovers that his first game is on the same day of his Grandpa's special anniversary celebration. Oscar's mother will not excuse her son from the family party. Leave it to Grandpa to work out a suitable arrangement for everyone. Oscar makes the game and scores a goal for his grandfather. This chapter book has appealing characters, an action-filled plot and full-color illustrations that really enhance the text. Readers, especially those who play on sports teams, will identify with Oscar and his love of the game. This young boy has a desire to succeed that is palpable, thanks to excellent dialogue and characterization. This title is one in the publisher's "Yellow Bananas" series. 2002 (orig. 2000), Crabtree Publishing, Pettenati
