Praise for Ball Stars 2: Heat Wave

“Embedded within the text are useful training tips for young basketballers and positive messages regarding involvement in sport. Designed for mid-Primary and reluctant readers in Upper Primary, the Ball Stars tales will appeal to both girls and boys, depicting cultural diversity and gender equity in a natural and non-didactic manner.”

Allison Paterson, Magpies, Volume 32

“This is a fabulous story about standing up for others, overcoming fears, making new friends and also realising that there is more to life than sitting in front of a computer screen! It is the first in new series that middle level readers will all enjoy. It has both humour and lessons to be learned.”

Sam, Lamont Books
