Children Ages 8+ • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Narrator Lucy Scott enlivens this spirited sports story. Twelve-year-old Barney Frank and his twin sister, Hattie, are soccer (here called "football") fans--spectators of professional games and players for their school team. Listeners will enjoy hearing about the team and the family's home, which is shared with Grandpa Barney, Scott's best creation. Young Barney enters a contest without divulging his age to coach a professional football team for a charity event. Hearing the two Barneys join ranks in their hopes to win the contest is thrilling. The televised competition and school matches are realistic and infectious. The family's relationships sound genuine, with the twins competing but uniting when needed. Most rewarding for young listeners is learning that competition is normal and that both winning and losing can be sources of pride. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2018]
