Featured Reviews

Fowl is an engaging little football story right out of the Roy of the Rovers locker. This is a very entertaining and heart-warming little book. Not very long and should hold the children’s attention quite easily.
There is a lot of excitement to be had and a few morals to be taught, specifically about loyalty, friendship and brotherly love.
If I had one fault to find with the book, it would be that it could have used a few pictures or drawings. It is just a thought.
Fowl is definitely a book that I will be suggesting for the Library shelf and for friends and family.
Thank you, Matador and NetGalley, for the ARC.

This is a perfect book for children that love football. It is exciting, a lot is happening, and it is also heartwarming. And the main message is just perfect. I wish there were illustrations to go with it.
