The Demon Football Manager: (Books for kids: football story for boys 7-12) (Paperback)
The Charlie Fry Series continues. It's time to meet ... The Demon Football Manager.
Charlie Fry is the Football Boy Wonder.
After being hit by a lightning bolt - he has developed a magical gift.
When he shoots, he never misses.
He's now being touted as a future England star - despite not yet starting a competitive game for his new club Hall Park Rovers.
However Charlie, who has cystic fibrosis and struggles to run too far, soon finds out fame brings its own problems. He has a new manager to impress - and Chell Di Santos does not like sharing the limelight with his players.
Can Charlie win him over and keep his dreams of being a top footballer alive? Or will the Demon Football Manager live up to his nickname?
The Demon Football Manager is the second football book in the Charlie Fry Series, the follow-up to the best-selling Football Boy Wonder.
It is a football story for kids aged 7-12. It looks at themes such as bullying, friendship, loyalty and the wonderful world of football.
Praise for The Demon Football Manager:
"I loved the book, mainly because it reminded me so much of highs and lows of school life."
"My son (age 10) loves this series of books, so much so, he wanted to write a letter to the author to tell him how good the books are. Praise doesn't get much better than that "
"All the books in the Charlie Fry series are brilliant. Our 8-year-old son loves them and they are really inspirational. His literacy has really improved too and I believe the great writing in the series of books has contributed to this. Please keep writing."
Written to raise awareness about cystic fibrosis, the importance of friendship and bullying, the books are aimed at children between seven and 12.
If your kids love books about Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Kane, then Charlie Fry will be perfect for them.
