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 training as a teacher, Deb travelled to Africa where she was harassed by monkeys, caught in a desert sandstorm and thrown in jail . . . twice! She’s worked as a child wrangler and a rides operator at Luna Park, but her first real job was as writer/producer of a national children’s TV show at Network TEN. She has since become an internationally published and awarded author of 28 books including her cranky climate change trilogy, Grimsdon, New City and Final Storm. Her family’s survival in WW2 and migration to Australia inspired Teresa A New Australian. TheStupendously Spectacular Spelling Bee and The Most Marvellous Spelling Bee Mystery were inspired by her fantabulous Grade 4 teacher, Ms Gray. She’s also written picture books: Wolfie, An Unlikely Hero and the 2021 CBCA Notable, Bear in Space. The Book of Wondrous Possibilities is her love letter to books, booksellers, librarians and readers. Deb’s won awards for her work but mostly hopes to be as brave as her characters. She’s a proud ambassador for the charities, Room to Read and Books in Homes. www.deborahabela.com
