Stuff Happens – Jack by Tony Wilson
Published by Penguin Australia
Soccer-mad Jack loves inventing new games to play with his mates, but when a schoolyard game of You Play, You Pay goes wrong, Jack ends up with a broken arm. Jack and his friends lie to the school principal about what actually happened, to avoid getting into trouble.
Friendships are tested, and Jack and his mates eventually realize that they have to accept responsibility for themselves and tell the truth.
Throughout the story there is an emoticom chart that indicates Jack’s mood at the end of each chapter.
A sporty tale for young boys, aged six to ten, which will help them understand and value their own emotional feelings.
