Format: Paperback
This book is one of the best books I've read so far. It is all about a boy called Jake who finds himself qualifying for United's Academy. But he is a City fan, United's rivals. You will probably like this book if you are 7-12 and into football.

Format: Paperback
The Football Academy series is perfect for football mad boys and girls. Short chapters, bold print and large illustrations make it an ideal read for 7 year olds and above. The boys on the team have all got a story to tell, kicking off with Jake Oldfield. Jake is likeable and many boys will relate to him. They'll like the ratings given to every player at the end of the match, too. The series is very inclusive with the squad including a British Asian boy called Yunis and a Polish boy called Tomasz. An ideal stocking filler.

Format: Paperback
This is the first book about a Premier League academy in England. It is really realsitic. I love the bit when Jake gets a place on the team and when he makes friends with Yunis.

I have read three of the series. This is my favorite, but the other two are good too.

My son has never liked reading despite buying him Beast Quest and Wimpy Kid. He is passionate about football so I should have looked for these books before but he has now asked to go to bed 15 minutes early each night so he can read this book. I have now ordered the rest of the series and am thrilled he is enjoying books.

My six year old loved this story. We alternated reading pages together (I read one page, he the next), but he was so keen to find out how it ended that he finished the book on his own by waking up early one morning. He's asked if we can buy him others in the series - a strong accolade! The story had a good pace, good messages about the importance of father / son relationships and being nice to other people, and lots of football action!

my 7 year old son is not really into reading but is football mad. We bought this to encourage his reading and as he could relate to the story can keep his attention reading with him.

Perfect stocking filler for any 7-10 year old boy or football mad girl. I would say unless child is not a great reader 12 years would be pushing it!
