But to Owen’s surprise, it turns out not to be so hard, after all.

This football comic turns book-shy kids into monster bookworms!

How rotten is that! Bram can’t play for FC Redspike because he’s too small. Standing on the sidelines, Bram meets Drago, who’s also not allowed on the pitch. Drago isn’t an ordinary boy, though; he’s a vampire. He has some friends who are just as unusual as he is, and he and Bram decide to start their own team with them. They call themselves the Pitch Monsters! And even though the briefest exposure to sunlight reduces Drago to dust, defender wolf Lars is not in command of his temper and the monster twins would rather eat the ball than kick it into goal, they end up winning the match against FC Redspike.

Comics are a playful invitation for children to read

Fantastic pictures with large print for beginning readers in the speech bubbles.

COOLMAN, the football expert? That can only end in chaos! Kay and his class are playing football in their sport lesson. Not only is it not his favourite subject, but he’s also been relegated to the substitutes’ bench. Boring! COOLMAN thinks to himself and starts charging towards the goal himself. When Kay is allowed to play, after all, COOLMAN naturally has tons of excellent tips for him: kick the ball into the top left corner of the net, no, the bottom right, or maybe better the bottom left. Kay gets completely confused and in the end only manages to roll the ball. So the teacher decides to put him in goal. But hey, COOLMAN knows exactly how to stop a ball: just brick up the mouth of the goal or magically turn the striker to stone! Kay is so distracted by COOLMAN that he can’t stop a single ball. COOLMAN is really getting on his nerves. But then Kay grabs the ball himself and finally proves that he can score goals. | 7 +
