Description

'Ferguson picks up the ball inside the Scottish half and he's off. He skips round England's Dawes. . . nutmegs Bryan. . . shoots. . . and SCORES! Goal for Scotland in the 89th minute of this World Cup quarter-final! England are on their knees. Ferguson sends the Scottish fans crazy. What a player!'

Don't miss a minute of the non-stop action as 10-year-old Calum Ferguson goes from struggling to settle into a new town whilst fighting for his place on the school football team to impressing scouts, proving themselves and contending with arch rivals. Scotland Stars F.C. books are packed with excitement on and off the field, as well as loads of extras like character cards to collect and football tips, puzzles and games.

Caleytown's dreams are coming true. They've made it to the National Soccer Sevens Tournament and the only thing standing between them and the cup are all of Scotland's finest football teams.
Calum spots the Scotland manager, some scouts, and his hero James Cauldfield in the crowd, and he's getting nervous. Mr McKlop has some fun ways to distract them but Calum's nerves only escalate when, unexpectedly, he is made captain of the team. Can he get them through to the final? Can he overcome his jitters and impress the scouts? Will Caleytown bring home the cup?

Reviews

Praise for Calum's New Team (Book 1):

'Nice writing style and no embarrassing stuff. You only need to like football. And to be able to sympathise with a boy who has to use his dog as goalie [not very good at defending the goal] when he plays all alone.'
-- Bookwitch

'... the love for the game and for literacy shines through the text. It's easy to read, with a manageable vocabulary and a plot that moves along quickly and realistically. Interspersed with zazzy illustrations from Alice A Morentorn and complete with trading cards inside, this is a young football fan's dream story.'
--MinervaReads
