Diary of a Soccer Star by Shamini Flint

Sometimes those young boys just don’t want to read. There are  so many other things they could be doing. Playing sport, watching TV, playing xbox.  There are lots of things going on for young boys.  So to get them to choose to read you have to keep offering them books they might enjoy.

Shamini Flint has written two books which will appeal to those slightly reluctant boys aged 8-11 or so.  They are not to long and involve sport. Pretty good start! They are set out a little like the Wimpy Kid books, with black and white  illustrations and speech bubbles but they are much shorter which is less intimidating for those reluctant readers. What more could a young chap need?  And did I say they are funny?

So far there are two books, Diary of a Soccer Star and Diary of a Cricket God. Both are $10.
