Franktastic Football Manager Aged 12 is the first in a series of sports themed books by B. Briers. Perfect for reader 8+ of all sporting abilities. Available here as an unabridged audio download produced by Simon Wood at Dubmaster Studios. Barney and Hattie Frank are 12-year-old twins who play football together in the school team. The team are trying to win the County Cup. Hattie is the better player but Barney thinks he can see where the school team is going wrong. So, when a TV talent show is looking for a new manager to help a failing Premiership team to start scoring again, Barney’s sure he knows the answer. Maybe, to demonstrate his skills, he could train Hattie to be a top goal scorer. Secretly he enters the show. If only he could win, wouldn’t that prove that he knows all about football, even if he’s not the best player. The second in the series Franktastic Tackling Rugby is available on paperback and Kindle Edition. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lucy Scott.

Ci sono bar e bar ma il Bar Sport è qualcosa di più. Un classico dell´umorismo, Bar Sport ritorna con la sua irresistibile brigata di compagni di ventura, i suoi flipper, il telefono a gettoni e la Luisona, la brioche paleolitica in perenne attesa del suo consumatore. Un catalogo di ´´eroi´´, ormai coronati dalla stralunata aureola del mito: la sparapalle e il professore, il tennico e il carabiniere, il ragioniere innamorato e la cassiera dalle grandi poppe, il leggendario calciatore e il lavapiatti che sogna di diventare cameriere. Versione integrale. 1. Italian. David Riondino. http://samples.audible.de/bk/emon/000033/bk_emon_000033_sample.mp3.
