Johnny Ball: Undercover Football Genius Summary

Johnny Ball: Undercover Football Genius by Matt Oldfield

From the author of Ultimate Football Heroes comes the second book in the Johnny Ball series, funny reading for football-mad kids.

Johnny Ball's got a super exciting new job: assistant manager for the Tissbury Tigers! But there's a catch. Johnny's brother, Daniel, is the Tiger's star player and he doesn't want his younger brother cramping his style. Daniel tells Johnny that no one on the team is ever allowed to know who he is. Can Johnny use his football genius to go undercover and lead the Tigers to victory in the League?

This funny and entertaining story from Matt Oldfield, who is well-known for his Ultimate Football Heroes biographies, is sure to be a hit among football-loving primary school children. The seamless link-up play between storytelling, match reports and relentless humour will ensure that young readers are engrossed in Tissbury Tigers' league challenge right to the final whistle. -- Parent * Toppsta *
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 *
