T.J. and the Penalty
TJ’s friend Jamie is the heart and soul of the Parkview football team, but although he’s a great tackler his passes are dangerously random – and he can’t resist the stodgy food that his mum and the school cook love to tempt him with. Jamie becomes so unfit that Mr Wood drops him from the team, so his friends and their parents organize a World Food and Football day to try and change his eating habits – and to impress the Inspectors who seem to think Parkview is not a very good school. Jamie works really hard to get fit, and finally regains his place in the team, but only when he accepts his true vocation as a goalie.

One of the UK’s favourite storytellers, David Walliams’ novels are full of wit and wisdom. They have heart-warming themes and a spiky sense of humour that appeals to any fan of Roald Dahl. In this book, he’s delighted to introduce children to The Midnight Gang!
Although most children are fast asleep by the time the clock strikes 12, The Midnight Gang’s adventures are just beginning… Tom has been hit on the head by a cricket ball and finds himself at Lord Funt hospital, a place run by terrifying porters and wicked matrons. However, when he meets four other patients in the children’s ward, things get exciting.
While bonding, the five friends find all their dreams coming true. This is a spellbinding book about the power of friendship and magic. It’s just as captivating as Walliams’ previous books.
