IZZY FOLAU Standing Tall by David Harding
Published by Random House Australia
This time I read Izzy Folau Standing Tall. This is a book in the Izzy Folau series. I have never read one of these books before. I have never read a rugby book before! The story is written from the point of view of two boys Sione and Daniel. They are school boy rugby players for The Valley. Izzy Folau is their coach. The story is about The Valley playing in the State Championships.
I was surprised, I really enjoyed this book, I usually only read books about AFL and Soccer! I liked the chapters being written by the boys and the story was very interesting. I didn’t find any boring parts. I like the competition story and learnt about rugby.
Overall I thought this book was great. I think the rugby tips at the end of the book are really useful. The stats on Izzy were also interesting. The illustrations at the end of each chapter are very useful in imagining the story.
I would recommend this book to all sports fans, even if you don’t know anything about rugby. The boys in the book are very likeable and the competition very interesting. Thumbs up!
