Three Jasper Zammit books in one big edition, just in time for the soccer world cup!

The Game of Life
Jasper Zammit is a soccer legend – in his own head. Whole stadiums cheer as he bends balls and scores magic goals. When Lil joins the Rovers Under-11s, Jasper finds someone as obsessed with soccer as he is. But Lil’s dad is the reason Jasper’s dad lost his job. Can they be friends?

The Striker
Aamir can’t speak English, but he’s a brilliant soccer player for the Rovers. The trouble is, Eastville Kings star player Badger can’t resist badgering his opponent to put them off their game. Now his target is Aamir. Who will be sent off the field with a red card?

The Finals
Just before the finals, the Rovers get a new coach. But winning is all he cares about, and playing soccer isn’t as fun anymore. Lil’s big brother devises a plan to get the Rovers back on track. Can he save them? Time is running out and he’s their only hope.

Bestselling author Deborah Abela teamed up with Australian soccer legend and former Socceroo captain Johnny Warren to write this fast-paced series about soccer, friendship, and kids who want to be their own legends!

About the Author

Deborah Abela

After completing a teaching degree, Deb went to Africa where she was caught in a desert sandstorm, harassed by monkeys and thrown in jail … twice! She produced and wrote a national kids’ TV show before leaving to write twenty-six books including the Max Remy Superspy and Jasper Zammit (Soccer Legend) series and Grimsdon, New City and Final Storm, about kids living in a climate-changed world. Teresa A New Australian was inspired by her dad who was born in a cave during one of the heaviest bombing raids of World War II. The Stupendously Spectacular Spelling Bee and the sequel, The Most Marvelous International Bee, were inspired by her grade four teacher, Miss Gray. Her first picture book is Wolfie, An Unlikely Hero. She is a proud ambassador for the Premier’s Reading Challenge, Room to Read and Books in Homes. Deb’s won awards for her books but mostly hopes to be as brave as her characters.
