This book is a worldwide phenomenon in children's literature and has sold over 9 million copies in 30 countries!
About the author:
Joachim Masannek was the coach of a kids' soccer team, which inspired his creation of The Wild Soccer Bunch. His mission is to encourage children worldwide to live by their values they learn by playing the
game of soccer: courage, teamwork, and friendship. He presently lives in Munich with his beloved sons.
Book 1 is Kevin the Star Striker, and it is all about the day that Kevin and his friends were grounded from playing soccer. Kevin and his friends will do anything to play soccer and find many funny ways to get out of their punishment of being grounded. When they do arrive at the soccer field they are confronted by Mickey the Bulldozer and his gang of friends called the Unbeatables. Kevin and his friends challenge the Unbeatables to the biggest game of their lives. Can they win against the Unbeatables or will they lose their soccer field forever?
When this book arrived in the mail I handed it to my daughter who is almost 9. She loved this book so much she couldn't put it down! She finished it in less than a day~I couldn't believe it when she said "I finished the book, can we get the second book?" Any child that loves the game of soccer will love reading about The Wild Soccer Bunch. I would have to say that The Wild Soccer Bunch is the book for soccer lovers.
