Editorial Reviews

Authors Felice Arena and Garry Lyon also perform this second installment in their acclaimed Specky Magee series, which follows protagonist Simon Magee as he strives to become a huge Aussie Rules superstar. In Specky Magee and the Great Footy Contest, Simon enters a major contest in hopes of becoming an international sports ambassador, while simultaneously grappling with the big issue of a bully on the field: old enemy Derek "Screamer" Johnson.

Arena and Lyon make a great team, putting in performances that highlight the action and excitement of the sport central to this series, while simultaneously maintaining consistent pacing and imbuing each character with bright, distinctive vocal personalities.

Publisher's Summary

Specky comes face to face with a tough, talented player by the name of Derek "Screamer" Johnson. He was responsible for having Specky sent off during a game last season. The two boys become bitter rivals, and when a popular TV show runs a nationwide football contest, Specky is relieved when everyone except Screamer decides to enter. But why is Screamer such a bully on the field? And why is he sucking up to Specky's teammates?
