Product Description

Yunis can hardly believe that he’s the top United scorer. It should be the happiest time of his life! But his father wants him to give up football so he can focus on school. Can Yunis convince his dad otherwise, or must he hang up his boots forever?

This gripping tale of football and growing up is winning stuff from a Blue Peter Award nominee. The author, Tom Palmer, has worked with Booktrust and the National Literacy Trust, and was an official writer for the Premier League Reading Stars scheme.
