Joe marked the footy.

He ran with it as fast as he could.

Then he handballed to Angus.

'Dropping the ball!' shouted the umpire.

Joe is awesome at footy.

So why is handballing so hard?



This first title in this new series is about Joe, who plays Aussie Rules football for his team, The Dragons. Joe is great at kicking and marking the ball, but his handballing skills are not so good and he is worried that he is letting his team down.

His coach suggests that he practices. So that is exactly what Joe does! He practices everyday for the rest of the week and with anything that he can get his hands on, which does not impress those around him!

But will all his practice pay off?

This new series by Felice Arena is sure to be a hit with your young readers, especially those that love sport!
