Overview

Hurray for soccer! Anyone / at all / at all / can learn to kick a ball / a ball. A kangaroo could do it, / too, / a bigger kick than me or you but never put one / in a game ’cuz they can kick but / they / can't / aim! This new collection of poems by Loris Lesynski captures the joys, thrills, and challenges of one of the most popular sports in the schoolyard today. Rhythmic, funny verses reflect the game’s energy while offering sound suggestions for proper play. Crazy About Soccer!, a collection full of twists, turns, and surprises, is sure to appeal to any reader who has ever played soccer, whether in cleats and a team shirt or in bare feet and—as in Shakespeare’s day—with a pig’s bladder for a ball! Wonderfully ridiculous and genuinely funny artwork complements the bouncy poems.
