"With subtle but effective themes of overcoming adversity, standing up to bullies and having self-belief, this [Calum's New Team] is a rousing, rollicking, feel-good winner that'll have any kid cheering from the stands."

Shari Low, Daily Record

"The love for the game and for literacy shines through the text. It’s easy to read, with a manageable vocabulary and a plot that moves along quickly and realistically... It touched a nerve here – the things mentioned in the book absolutely happen – which makes it completely relatable."
