T.J. and the Penalty




The second in an unmissable new series about a football-mad group of friends, by the brilliant Arsenal and England star, Theo Walcott.

TJ’s friend Jamie is the heart and soul of the Parkview football team, but although he’s a great tackler his passes are dangerously random - and he can’t resist the stodgy food that his mum and the school cook love to tempt him with. Jamie becomes so unfit that Mr Wood drops him from the team, so his friends and their parents organize a World Food and Football day to try and change his eating habits – and to impress the Inspectors who seem to think Parkview is not a very good school. Jamie works really hard to get fit, and finally regains his place in the team, but only when he accepts his true vocation as a goalie.

About the Author

Theo Walcott

Theo Walcott was born on 16 March 1989 and grew up near Newbury. After joining the youth scheme at Southampton, he became the Saints' youngest ever player, before joining Arsenal in January 2006. Following his surprise selection in Sven-Göran Eriksson's World Cup squad, Theo set another record in making his England début at the age of just 17 years and 75 days, and was named the BBC's Young Sports Personality of the Year in 2006.

He has now played more than 300 times for Arsenal and is fast approaching 100 goals for the Gunners, including the goal that set them on the way to victory in the 2015 FA Cup Final. In September 2008 he also became the youngest player to score a hat-trick for England, for whom he now has nearly 50 caps.
