A great series for boys! This newest stallment of one of the most popular sports series for boys, is about a character named Rob Lasher. The boy is just an ordinary soccer player, who becomes a hero one day when he saves his coach's life in front of all his friends. Woven into the fabric of daily practice and school sports, is the subtle lesson that doing what's right doesn't always have to be rewarded...A nice long series with regular additions by the author. In fact, another is due out in early 2008. Even his web site is wonderful...

Want your boy to turn into a regular reader? Having a standing practice of reading these books to him. Start as young as six, at bedside, dinner table. Just read a page or two. Soon enough, he'll be reaching for them on his own...
