12 legendary sports stories for kids!
Meet a champion swimmer who loses his swimmers in the pool. Experience the most amazing handball rally of your life. Go for a ride on a wave with a hungry shark. Run an exciting race against Maggie the swooping magpie, and discover the curse of the dreaded wooden spoon.

These great stories and more inside Super Sports Stories for Kids!


Each story is action-packed with high stakes, over and done with in a few pages, but leaving the reader feeling satisfied that they have just read a quality story. With sport such a focus of life during the Australian summer, this is a great new release by the author of both the Billy Slater and Glenn Maxwell series that will appeal to both boys and girls.
