Marcus Atkinson is a sports star (not!)—five books, five attempts at sports, all-in-one

Marcus is a math whiz who is not good at sports. His dad is a self-help author who thinks Marcus can achieve anything he sets his mind to . . . with hilarious results. In illustrated diary format, Marcus's gentle, satiric humor will have readers laughing while learning a surprising amount about sports. Includes Diary of a Soccer Star, Diary of a Cricket God, Diary of a Rugby Champ, Diary of a Track and Field Titan, and Diary of a Taekwondo Master.


"An excellent choice for readers daunted by the move to less illustrated texts. In many ways, it reads like a graphic novel. Recommended for independent readers and reluctant readers." —Claire Saxby,
