Jake Treasure loves football - and so would his dad, if he wasn't working all the time. When Jake and his dog go into the woods in search of their football, a lucky shot by Jake changes everything. But can a cranky parrot and his ghostly owner rescue the town's football club, and make things right for Jake ...both on and off the pitch? Ian Whybrow's BOOKS FOR BOYS are funny, pacy reads from one of the UK's best-loved authors - collect them all!
Ian Whybrow has lived in Kent, various places in London and as far afield as Hong Kong and New York. The most important thing to him in his writing is that it reads aloud brilliantly and that there is something in it for everyone. Mark Beech has been working as an illustrator for over ten years, but he has scribbled all his life on anything he could get his hands on. As well as children's books, he has animated his illustrations for a picture book for the iPad, designed greetings cards and packaging, and worked in the world of advertising.
