Even Stevens F.C. Summary

Even Stevens F.C. by Michael Rosen

A winner from the children's laureate, popular poet and performer Michael Rosen - a must for all football fans. A hilarious full colour comic picture book about a football team. Wayne Travis and his mates may not be the greatest footballers in the world but the happy, multi-cultural team of all ages, both sexes and every permutation of colour and faith, certainly knows how to enjoy the great game.

Even Stevens F.C. Reviews

Wayne Travis and his father Rodney are football crazy but when Rodney's bad knee stops him playing one week, young Wayne steps up to the mark and the team go on to claim victory after victory. Could this oddball team have what it takes to make it to the cup final? Junior Newly confident readers will welcome the reissue of Michael Rosen's comical story about a hotchpotch local team that - more by luck than judgment - ends up playing in the FA Cup final. The ups and downs of everyday life in multiracial Hackney, London, are deftly interwoven into the stuff of football fantasies, with plenty of jokes along the way. Full colour illustrations and a narrative told partly in speech bubbles make this lively book particularly successful with older, reluctant readers. Guardian The hilarious story of how Even Stevens FC gets through to the FA Cup final. With full colour illustrations an d fast-paced, laugh-out-loud text - complete with speech bubbles and news reports - this really is a winner. Junior Education
