About the Author:

Abandoning childhood plans to be an astronaut, Dave Cousins went to art college in Bradford, joined a band and moved to London. He spent the next ten years touring and recording, and was nearly famous. Dave's writing career began aged ten, penning lyrics for an imaginary pop group. He has been
scribbling songs, poems and stories ever since. His debut novel for teenagers, 15 Days Witout My Head was a Sunday Times Children's Book of the Week, a winner of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators Undiscovered Voices, and was nominated for the Carnegie Medal. A member of author
collective The Edge, Dave spends his days at scholls and libraries meeting readers, or at his desk in the attic making up stories.

Review:

'Football fans, and even those who aren't, will be delighted by Dave Cousins' Charlie Merrick's Misfits in Fouls, Friends, and Footballs' * Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian * 'No footie-mad child will want to miss out on this all-action, fun and frantic story... perfectly football-pitched for sporty kids and reluctant readers' * Pam Norfolk, Lancashire Evening Post * Since I know very little about football, I particularly enjoyed the match report sheets and the little fact boxes peppered throughout the novel ... The humour is genuine and not patronising, which will hopefully launch this into the territory of Wimpy Kid and Tom Gates. * The School Librarian * The characters had a lot of depth, the storyline was interesting enough for me to like it, even though Football really isn't my thing... * Novak, Spider blog * A terrifically fun read from Dave Cousins which any young football fan will love. * Waterstones website * Sure to get boys, girls and football mad kids reading in the run up to the world cup! * Shoot website * There are so many good things to say about this book! The illustrations make the characters' personalities come to life, and the variety of styles used to tell the story make for wonderful little surprises with every turn of the page. * Bridget Hamlet, The School Librarian Journal * A must-read for all young football fans * Parents in Touch * Got a young football fan who struggles to engage in books? Give him, or her, this and things may well change! * Parents in Touch *
