Diary of a Rugby Champ

Diary of a Rugby Champ from Shamini Flint is the latest in the 'Diary' series. Utiliszing the ever popular, cartoon / dairy format Flint has ensured her books are perfect for emerging readers.

Each book features 9 year old Marcus Atkinson. Marcus is more than a little challenged when it comes to the sports skills department but this does not deter his dad who is more than a little eager for Marcus to immerse himself in a sport ... normally of his dad's choosing! 

In this one Dad signs him up to rugby - but have you seen the other guys who play rugby? They are HUGE, and they happen to include JT - the school bully. Marcus' sense of humour as he discovers the world of rugby, leads to some wonderfully comic moments and mishaps. The plot develops are Marcus not only learns more about himself, and rugby, but also discovers another side to JT.

The comic tone blends wonderfully with a great sprinkling of rugby knowledge which is perfect for sports fans too.

Oh, and did we mention that Marcus' dad writes self-help manuals? Cue some greatly timed one liners! The pace of Diary of a Rugby Champ is fast and punchy, rendering it ideal for those who are expanding their reading abilities. 

Diary of a Rugby Champ is perfect summer reading fodder. A great one to tuck into the bag and take down to the beach for a lazy afternoon of reading and chuckling.
