Q: What do you get when you cross an Australian soccer legend with a bestselling children's author?
A: Johnny Warren and Deborah Abela's new soccer series for kids!
Jasper Zammit is going to be a soccer legend. He can see the crowds roaring his name, can hear the commentators saying how fantastic he is and can see the soccer ball whizzing towards the goal....
The only problem is that he needs to learn how to play first, instead of daydreaming about the future during a game with the Rovers Under-11s. Maybe then he will be able to lead his team to victory instead of scoring a goal for the other team!
When a new girl, Lil, joins the team, Jasper thinks he's found someone as obsessed with soccer as he is. She even has a plan to help Jasper get his soccer-mad grandpop and his dad talking to each other again after their big fight over Jasper's dad quitting his job.
There's only one hitch - Lil's dad is the reason Jasper's dad lost his job in the first place. Can the two still be friends?
A fun and inspiring read for all aspiring Beckham's, Jasper Zammit is overflowing with advice from Australian soccer legend Johnny Warren and includes tips on how to improve your game and become the best soccer play you can.
