In more double your fun your young cricket devotees will be able to indulge in these two new bindups in the Glenn Maxwell series. Previously I reviewed the first two titles on this blog.

Books 3 and 4 take young Will’s playing ambitions to new highs – and lows. Will finds it hard to believe that his dream has come true when he finds himself playing at the hallowed MCG in the T20 National Youth Shield. He has been working on his positive thinking and his technique but suddenly finds himself struggling in his play. His rhythm has completely left him and he despairs of even making it through. He looks to his mentor Maxi to help him settle down and get back into the swing.

Book 4 holds even more excitement as Will and his team mates travel to England and the home of cricket to play in the T20 Youth World Championships.  While Will may be in seventh heaven having been selected not just for the team but asked to captain it, he is also a mass of nerves and misgivings about his ability to lead the team successfully. This is particularly so when he needs to somehow meld together the players from different states and overcome their rivalries. Again he looks to Glenn for advice and sagacity in his quest for the best.

These are just perfect reading for your cricketers, be they boys or girls, and with two for the price of one, you can’t go wrong putting them on your shelves.

Recommended for readers from around ten and up.
