Without a pair of football boots, how will Chichico’s football dreams ever come true? A brand new 4u2read edition of this uplifting tale from Carnegie Medal-winning author Geraldine McCaughrean.
Chichico can’t believe his luck when a talent scout spots him playing football on the beach and asks him to try out for Santos Brazil. All he has to do is turn up, bring his boots and show off his skills. But there’s one problem ... Chichico doesn’t have any boots. When his friend Davi steps in to lend a helping hand, can he save the day – or will his actions spoil Chichico’s chances of becoming a football star forever?
