When Timmy Twinkle kicks a ball - it's magic! A funny and charming story by award-winning author Sally Gardner, in her MAGICAL CHILDREN series.
Timmy Twinkle gets bullied at school and hasn't any friends. He longs to play football, but he's hopeless at games. He's miserable. And it doesn't help when Gramps tells him about Great-Uncle Vernon, who grew up to be a famous footballer.
Then his gran's friend May comes to stay. May is a fitness fanatic who knocks Timmy and Gramps into shape in no time, and Timmy discovers there's magic in his toes - he can kick a ball just like Great-Uncle Vernon. And when Timmy performs on the football field, everyone wants to be friends with him.
A brilliant story about how determination and love - with a little sprinkling of magic - overturn one boy's loneliness.
