About the Author:

If you don't already know, The Wild Soccer Bunch is a worldwide children's book phenomenon, having sold over 9 million books in 30 countries! Writer Joachim Masannek based the series on his own experiences as soccer coach to his young sons. Masannek's initial idea was to create a series of 13 books, each one narrated by a unique member of the team. This idea was inspired by his belief that soccer is the most inclusive of all team sports. In fact, Masannek said, in soccer, every member of the team, regardless of his/her athletic ability, has an opportunity to be directly involved in the game. Everyone gets to run around, kick the ball, and enjoy their time outdoors. Masannek could never have anticipated the huge success that followed the release of the debut book in the Wild Soccer Bunch series in Germany. Soon, this soccer dad artistic endeavor had millions of fans around the world, not to mention the wild success of book sales, films, and even merchandise. In fact, Masannek has written and directed five Wild Soccer Bunch feature films, breaking box office records in the process. These days, Masannek tours extensively, personally reading the books to underprivileged children across the world. If your child goes to bed wearing soccer cleats so they won't miss one minute of field time in the morning, he or she will fall in love with the Wild Soccer Bunch. And even if he or she is not the world's biggest fan, the book's universal themes of teamwork, leadership, diversity, and self-acceptance will still make an impact, and maybe even get them out and kicking a ball around! The series is a great way to introduce boys and girls alike to soccer, or any team sport; above all, the series is a fun read that will broaden the horizons of all kids, ages 8-14. Joachim Masannek, Born in 1960, studied German and Philosophy in college. He also studied at the University of Film and Television; worked as a camera operator, set designer and screenwriter in Films and TV. His children's book series The Wild Soccer Bunch has been published in 28 countries. As the screenwriter and director of the five The Wild Soccer Bunch movies, Joachim has managed to bring about nine million viewers into the theatres. He was the coach of the real Wild Bunch soccer team, coaching his sons Marlon and Leon.
