Sammy Striker and the Football Cup

UK Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books

Shoot for the stars with Sammy Striker! From Oscars Prize-shortlisted Catherine Emmett and bestselling illustrator Joe Berger, Sammy Striker and the Football Cup is an empowering story for young footie fans, about friendship, football, and having the courage to believe in yourself.

Sammy is a dribbler-extraordinaire, headed straight for the top. But, as the Football Cup gets closer, Sammy’s shots on goal go a bit . . . wonky.

Will Sammy work out that it’s what makes her DIFFERENT that will help them win the final?
