Great Goal! Marvellous Mark!

By Katrina Germein & Janine Dawson

(1 customer review)


Get ready for a great game of footy. There’s plenty of action and masses of mud. Who will kick the first goal? Who will take the best mark? And will the yellow team win?

A zippy, colourful, wet and muddy children’s weekend footy game that relates to all budding AFL champions and their families.

  1. Pam Gargett – Early Years Consultant, Queensland

    What an energetic book! The review begs to be written in hyperbole with fonts of different colour, size and orientation to pay homage to this gem. The entire book is alliterative in alphabetical order and paints the picture of a day that could have been a disaster but is actually an awesome Aussie Rules match.

    The style is infectious in its enthusiasm and draws the reader from page to page. Aptly aimed at aficionados of Aussie Rules (apologies, I just can’t help the alliteration – it is contagious) young sports fans of any persuasion will enjoy this little book mightily. The illustrations by Janine Dawson are funny and comical and tell the story all on their own.
    After reading it aloud once, there will be a guaranteed chorus joining in on each page. This is a book for rollicking reading aloud rather than alone and it is guaranteed to fly off the classroom or library bookshelf. Add this one to the classroom collection before next football season, or tuck it in a Christmas stocking for a young reader.
