The Wild Soccer Bunch, Book 2, Diego the Tornado

The Wild Soccer Bunch, Book 2, Diego the TornadoThe Wild Soccer Bunch, Book 2, Diego the Tornado by Joachim Masannek

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I think kids who like soccer will really get into this book, and it had some very well-written parts. However the adults were portrayed strangely to me. Maybe it's just how Diego and his friends see them, but with the exception of Diego's mom, they seemed one-dimensional and somewhat impulsive. The book is written as if Diego is just talking, which can be charming, but something seemed lacking.
Overall I think this is a good first chapter book for a seven or eight year old soccer fan, but I wasn't floored by it.
