The Ball Hogs by RIch Wallace

Wallace, Rich. Holder, Jimmy. Kickers – The Ball Hogs, 121 pgs. Alfred A. Knopf Publishing, 2010. $12.99. Language -G; Sexual Content- G; Violence –G; This book was about a boy named Ben who just started playing soccer. Ben enjoyed playing the game, but didn’t like a team mate named Mark. Mark was a very athletic boy and who thought he was the best on the team. Ben was frustrated because he knew if Mark would be more of a team player, they would have won more games. I really liked this book, especially the ending. It was interesting and I learned some tips about soccer. Kids ages 6-12 years old would like reading this book. EL- ESSENTIAL. Student Reviewer: Matt, age 11.
