“This is it!” said our coach. His eyes were red and bulging. His eyes were popping. “This is the biggest game of the year.”
It’s been a pretty memorable football season for Maxx Rumble and his team, the Stone Valley Saints. Now they are in the Grand Final – against the Outhouse Rodents.
But the Rodents are up to their usual tricks. They will stop at nothing to win the game, even locking the umpire in the change rooms and substituting him with a fake. Maxx has to figure out what is going on before it’s too late to save the game.
Maxx Rumble: Grand Final fever is the ninth title in the Maxx Rumble footy series, with each book telling the story of one game in the season. There are loads of laughs, with comic illustrations by Terry Denton, and plenty of action.
Great for beginning or reluctant readers.
