A fantastic tale of football and fishing for beginner readers.
Jake loves football and fishing (even though he barely ever catches a fish) but his best friend Adam thinks fishing is cruel. Jake also hasn't been doing very well in their team's Sunday matches, but is determined to prove himself, score a hat-trick and win the match ball in the game against their arch rivals. Adam makes the stakes even higher by making a deal with Jake - he'll help Jake to score his three goals but in return Jake will have to give up fishing! Will Jake go for the hat-trick?
