I would recommend this book to readers who like football and comics
When I first looked at the book, my first impressions were that it would be a book about football, where a team was playing a game worth £100,000,000.
The book is a fictional story in a comic-like style, and a football team (Melchester Rovers) is playing a game, which if was won, the team would get a promotion of £100,000,000. However, the game does not seem to favour the Melchester Rovers.
I liked how it was in a comic style and you could read it in one go. I also liked how it was fictional; therefore, opened up a massive number of creative possibilities.
If I had to suggest how it could be improved I would say that I disliked how the Melchester Rovers started to lose many players. I think it could have been more interesting if the author were to think of something different.
I would recommend this book to readers who like football and comics, aged from 7 – 15 years.
I really enjoyed the book and for that I will give it a solid 4/5.
