OWEN FOOTE, SOCCER STAR
New York : Clarion Books,
IL 3-6 RL 3.5
soccer fans! Meet Owen Foote. Like you, Owen loves soccer and
is excited when he and his best friend, Joseph, join the town's soccer
league together. Unfortunately, Joseph isn't very good
at kicking or running and he has a hard time remembering not to grab the
ball. Owen is embarrassed for his friend, especially when Walter,
the team hotshot and bully, starts teasing Joseph, calling him a klutz.
Thanks to Owen and the other members of the Aliens team who all pull together,
Walter learns a lesson in good sportsmanship. And Joseph? You'll
have to read this book to find out how he finds his place on this team
of soccer stars! (Jeannie Bellavance email@example.com.
