Book Description

29 April 2010 T.J. (Theo Walcott) (Book 1)
TJ is a new boy at Parkview School and he's never played in a proper football match before, but he soon makes friends with a bunch of football-mad kids.The trouble is, none of the teachers at Parkview are interested in football and the kids have nowhere to play - until Mr Wood arrives. With Mr Wood's help - and with the assistance of Mr Wood's old friend, Marshall Jones, a Premier League footballer - the kids and their parents mend their pitch, begin to put together a brilliant football team, and start to turn the school into a place to be proud of.

Product Description


"Theo's own story of developing his exceptional speed and striking skill that in the book causes him to fell the irate head teacher but in reality made him the fleet-footed darling of the Emirates at only 17 is threaded through the story. Good on detail, nicely written with a light humorous touch, Theo shows as sure a foot in print as on the pitch." (Julia Eccleshare The Guardian)

"Now his range (Theo Walcott's) of kid's books look set to be a huge success too." (The Sun)

"the first two books are actually pretty good... thoroughly enjoyable. Their climaxes, little more than made-up match reports, are particularly well done. Like their creator, this series could run and run." (Simon Burnton The Observer)

"Both stories... deal with the hard graft of training... Entertaining reads for soccer fans aged seven and upwards." (Irish Examiner)

"a great idea to get football-mad boys and girls reading and enjoyable enough to welcome others into the world of the beautiful game" (Junior Magazine)

Book Description

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspires reluctant readers 8 Mar 2011
By Tom
My son had never wanted to read more than the first chapter of other books. He read this from cover to cover and really enjoyed it. The excitement of the football is brought out of the page in a way that he could connect with. It's not too long either. A super choice for a boy interested in football but not interested in reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great book! 18 Oct 2012
I am in year 7 and I read this book in September.

This book is about T.J, a boy who moved to a new school, and his family. The new school has no facilities what so ever... until Mr. Wood came. He turned the school upside down with new ideas.

Mr. Wood is a new teacher based in the P.E department. He wants to start a football team but the head teacher disagrees. Mr. Wood has a back-up plan with a famous footballer coming to visit them.

My favourite part was when Parkview made a great victory against their snobby local rivals Hillside.

I would defiantly recommend this!

5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 2 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
These books are excellent, even for Spurs fans. I support Arsenal BTW. The series definitley appeals to 8+ and any boy. These books are partly why Walcott is my favouriite player.
