SOCCER DREAMS AND PLENTY OF ACTION this second book in the Gym Shorts series scores high with new readers.

There’s nothing Goose wants more than to play goalie for his soccer team. It looks like such fun – and so easy! – on TV. But to say Goose has a little trouble focusing is a bit of an understatement.  Luckily, his friend Henry agrees to train him. Just as Goose starts to improve, Henry gets grounded for slipping grades. Can Goose make it to goalie? Can he help Henry who has helped him so much already? 

Goof-Off Goalie is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
