Description and Table of Contents


TreeTops True Stories are exciting, motivating non-fiction books which will broaden your pupils' reading experience. They are part of a structured reading programme for juniors. There are 11 positions on a football pitch, and this book contains 11 recounts of clashes in FA Cup matches, both finals and fixtures along the way. Martin Waddell has skilfully woven together his 'dream team' of 11 players in each match described. The book is full of real action shots, and photo-realistic artwork that supports the text. Martin asks the reader to imagine their own dream team, and even confides by way of an early photograph that he himself was playing at semi-professional level in his youth. This title will really appeal to boys, in particular, who struggle to engage with a text through lack of interest or reading difficulty, but it has cross-gender appeal for girls too, who are interested in the beautiful game. Books contain inside cover notes to support children in their reading. Help with childrens reading development also available at This book is also available as part of a mixed pack of 6 different books or a class pack of 36 books of the same Oxford Reading Tree level.
