More About This Title Spooky Soccer
A fun and quirky story against anything but your average team from Malachy Doyle. When Seamus and his scaredy-ba Granda go for a night-time walk, they don't expect to find a group of ghosts in an old barn. Greg the Ghoul, Phantom Pete, and friends are too scared to go up into heaven, in case they are sent back down to hell, so they are just waiting around in the barn, getting bored. Seamus has an idea to relieve their boredom—they should form a soccer team and play other ghosts! The ghosts are nervous, but Seamus and his Granda help them get fit and improve their game. Soon they are champion players, powering their way through teams on earth, heaven, and even hell!
Malachy Doyle writes a variety of picture books, story books, and teenage novels. His first teenage novel, Georgie, won the Tir na nOg Award, and his picture book, Cow, won an English Association Award, both in 2002.
