What readers have said

“Really good, will buy more of the set. Kept my son, who has a real dislike for reading, entertained.”


“This book gives a good background of the good soccer player named Neymar Dos Santos Junior and how he made it big from Brazil looking up to players such as Pele, Ronaldo, and Ronaldinho. It shows that he was born in Brazil, played for a club named Santos and the Brazil National team. He started playing soccer for Santos when he was only 12 years old and he was a wonder-kid. In 2013 he was saddened but happy that he was going to leave his awesome team but was so happy because he was going to a team that was possibly the best team in world, FC Barcelona.”

“I bought 4 of this series for my footie-mad grandson. I had a look and thought these have been written with the average 10-12 year-old boy in mind. Written as a story of the hero’s life.”


“My 9 year old loved this.”


“Five stars – excellent.”
