Description

Josh and Mo are twins who both go along to watch Oldchester Athletic every Saturday. The team are three games away from winning promotion to the Premier League and are also through to the cup finals at Wembley. Josh is very excited about all this but his sister Mo doesn't get very excited about football and can take it or leave it. Mo buys some peanuts and swallows the 'peanut of power' which gives her the most extraordinary good luck. The slimey owner of Oldchester decides he needs her for the team mascot to ensure that team gains promotion and wins the cup ...* Chris Powling is a well-know and respected name in the Children's books world - in 1996, as part of the Books for Keeps team, he won the Eleanor Farjeon Award for services to children's literature. * In 1994 his book "The Phantom Carwash" was runner-up for the Smarties Prize. * * A lively and fun story about football, featuring a likeable reluctant hero, and nice flashes of fantasy. * Football stories are popular at this age range and this story fits in with several other football stories published by OUP. * Illustrated throughout in black and white.show more
