Madlenka Soccer Star

Madlenka Soccer Star Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Madlenka—that cosmopolitan little girl whose city block is a world of its own—is back and ready to play! When she dribbles her brand new soccer ball out the door and around the corner, it seems that everyone wants to get in the game—the mailbox, a dog, even a parking meter, but especially all the neighborhood cats, and there are enough of them to make a team. But theyre no match for Madlenka, who scores the winning goal. 

 

 

Three-time Caldecott Honoree Peter Sis rides the rising tide of soccer enthusiasm to score another winner.

Review:

"'In the universe, on a planet, on a continent, in a country, in a city, on a block, in a house, lives a little girl named Madlenka, who dreams of being a soccer star.' Madlenka's home remains a place that's at once familiar and fantastic, where no one, not even the trash cans, can avoid soccer fever. Dribbling along the street, Madlenka challenges everything she meets, from mailboxes to parking meters (which have eyes, limbs, and surprised expressions) and a team of cats. Endnotes about the history and global love of the game drive home the message: 'The whole world wants to play soccer!' Ages 4 — 8. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

Madlenka plays soccer in her city neighborhood--with the mailbox, a dog, a parking meter, and some cats. Includes facts about the game, and translations for the word "soccer" in various languages.
