Scholastic, 2016. ISBN 9781760273651
(Ages: 6+) Recommended. Timmy finds himself dreaming of playing soccer for Australia and when the opportunity comes up to be involved in a match with the Australian team, he works extra hard to realise his dream. He meets a new friend, Sienna, who is a mad keen soccer player as well and they enter a soccer tricks competition to earn a spot assisting at Australia's next game.
Living the Dream is the third book in the Tiny Timmy series by Tim Cahill and continues to promote a positive message of not losing sight of your goals. The text is highly engaging with variable fonts to highlighted keywords and expressions. Chunks of text are regularly supported by Heath McKenzie's illustrations making Living the Dream an accessible book for a range of readers.
This book is recommended for soccer or sporting fans in general and those who enjoy a more graphic style of text layout.
