Football Fever 2: Half-Time Heroes

Everyone’s got football fever!

The second book in an action-packed junior fiction series in partnership with Football Australia. Featuring Commbank Matildas and Socceroos stars Emily van Egmond, Courtney Nevin, Awer Mabil, Marco Tilio and more!

The Under 11s Merridale Fever are back! They’re having their best season ever, and even better – they have the chance to play as Half-time Heroes at a Socceroos game. All they have to do is make a video showing what makes their team special. Instead of working together, the team take sides and try to convince each other that their way is the best way. Can tips from some of Australia’s best footballers help the Fever agree on what makes them heroes?

“A charmingly observant and child-centred evocation of how to tackle both the joys and disappointmets of being a child – both in team sport and in wider life. Highly recommended!”

- Ursula Dubosarsky – Award-winning Children's Authors and 2020–2021 Australian Children's Laureate

“I think one of the things I really value about this series so far is the celebration of differences within the team, as well as their common love of football. I rate this: ⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️ (This series keeps getting better!)”
