Spider McDrew gets the chance to play for the Parkfield school football team, in the end-of-season cup draw. As usual though, things are not plain sailing for Spider who lets his side down by giving away a crucial penalty kick. Poor Spider is a pitiful sight as he stands on the touchline all alone. Then, he is asked to take one last corner kick.* Topaz/ Band 13 books offer longer and more demanding reads for children to investigate and evaluate.* Text type - A humorous story with a familiar setting.* A reader response page provides lots of opportunities for speaking and listening and scaffolding writing.* Curriculum links - ICT: Combining text and graphics; PSHE: Developing good relationships.* This is the second SpiderMcDrew tale by Alan Durant and Philip Hopman.* This book has been quizzed for Accelerated Reader
