This is the second Johnny Ball book and he is still a brilliant football manager. I love the mix of match reports and story. Johnny is really fair and kind to his friends. He's started to change what he wears in this story but I'm not going to spoil the surprise. Next year, he might be my World Book Day character! There are lots of illustrations by Tim Wesson and I think they are great too! Thank you Matt Oldfield for writing this exciting book - I loved it! -- Reader, Age 7 * Toppsta *
