Goal! by Mina Javaherbin ; illustrated by A.G. Ford
Goal is about a boy and his friends that love playing soccer or as they call it football. So an african boy takes his ball out and takes it to a path. But, he must beware of the bullies who like to tease children. His friends hear him playing with the ball and they come outside too. still being aware.
They set up two buckets as goals and start shooting the balls straight past them. then after one team almost finishes out comes the bully and his passe. The boy hides the ball in a special place and takes out another ball. the bullies takes the ball and keeps it. After the bullies leave the boys start to play again still being aware and having a great day!
I like this book because after the mean furocouis bullies come they still stay confident and make something positive out of it!
