Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Toby Lane is playing soccer at school, in his favorite position--goalie! But he can't seem to get it right, until he gets help from someone he hardly knows. This short chapter book has plenty of illustrations in smooth black ink, which remind a reader of comic strips in the newspaper. With a racially diverse cast and themes about sportsmanship, practice, and death, this book is a great read for a reluctant reader, or a reader who's insecure about her reading level compared to peers. Includes glossary and tips for learning to play soccer. Set in a rural area.
