Jackson's Goal Released

Thursday, May 05, 2011

Off the back of the success of their first footy picture book, Jackson’s Footy, Dwayne Russell and Donna Gynell today released the second in the series, Jackson’s Goal.

This vibrant and action-packed story is about a young boy named Jackson, who loves Australian Football. He practises his skills in the backyard, by himself, all day and all night.

He dodges, bounces and handballs. He marks, tackles and kicks the footy, all under the watchful eye of his Mum. Jackson is ecstatic when he makes the team, but will he remember everything he’s learnt along the way when he plays his first game with the Bears?

Dwayne Russell is a former player, who played for Port Adelaide in the SANFL and Geelong in the AFL. He now works as a sports commentator and radio host.

Donna Gynell is the illustrator of the international bestseller, Arthur, and has specialised in children’s books for more than 25 years. Jackson’s Goal is their second book together; their first, Jackson’s Footy, is recently new to paperback.

This beautifully illustrated read-along storybook is perfect for mums and dads to read to their young footy fans. It’s ideal for children aged 2-7 years.

Available now from all good book stores. Jackson’s Goal is the must-have new addition, to the successful Jackson footy picture book series. RRP $25.
