Description

Nicholas is gearing up for a big soccer match - but will his family survive all of his practicing?

Nicholas is dribbling and kicking his soccer ball all through the house, much to the irritation of his parents and sister. Fed up, Dad throws the ball outside. When the rest of Nicholas's team come by to practise for the big tournament later that day, havoc is wreaked on the house and yard. Dad can't get them to the park fast enough. The question is: will their edge-of-the-seat game convince even Dad that soccer is great?

A delightful new title from Montreal-based author Gilles Tibo and illustrator Bruno St-Aubin, whose previous picture books featuring Nicholas include Hurry Up, Nicholas!, The Best Goalie Ever and the bestselling Where's My Hockey Sweater?

Editorial Review

Praise for Soccer Crazy

"Gilles Tibo and Bruno St-Aubin's Soccer Crazy is a fun picture book about good sportsmanship both on and off the playing field...Tibo's writing is snappy and dynamic, with a great tempo, and effectively employs onomatopoeia and repetition. St-Aubin's watercolour/pencil crayon illustrations are hilarious and energetic." -CM Magazine

"The award winning combination of writer Gilles Tibo and illustrator Bruno St-Aubin has created another fast paced funny book about the trials and tribulation of pursuing a goal!...It is a great read aloud for story time. It is a book that both parents and children can relate to." -Resource Links
