Overview

Charlie and his best friends are finally on the same soccer team. But is it a winning combination? From the award-winning middle grade series by Bill Harley.

“Master storyteller Harley scores again with fourth-grader Charlie Bumpers.”―Kirkus Reviews

Charlie Bumpers and his best friends are finally on the same soccer team and are sure the Pirates will be the best team ever! But their high hopes are crushed on the first day of practice. Not only do they have a bunch of shrimpy and inexperienced teammates, their new coach doesn’t believe in star players. And the first few games leave little to be desired.

If they can’t be on a winning team, Charlie thinks maybe he, Tommy, and Hector can at least win the prize for selling the most candy bars for the fundraiser. But after a series of near catastrophes, Charlie and his friends learn that hotshot plays and gimmicky sales techniques aren’t as effective as hard work, honesty, and cooperation. Black and white illustrations throughout.

Charlie Bumpers is a heartwarming and hilarious middle grade series starring a relatable fourth grader dealing with everyday issues surrounding family, friends, and school. From Grammy Award-winning author Bill Harley.
