Reviews - What do customers think about Catch That Pass! (Matt Christopher Sports Series)?
A Good Book!! Jan 6, 2006
Catch That Pass is a good book because the kid Jim can't catch the football.Then he finally catches the football and runs as fast as he can run. His brother is the coach and he had the same problem as Jim. Something happens in the middle but I can't tell you because you need to read it to find out.
Catch That Pass! Mar 4, 2004
Imagine yourself in the shoes of a football player who's afraid to be tackled. Think of the embarrassment.
Jim Nardi plays for the Vulcan's football team and his big brother is the head coach. He is about 12-13 years old, and is the main character.
The problem with Jim Nardi is that whenever he gets an interception he drops the ball because he doesn't want to get tackled. But his close friend Bucky, also on Jim's football team, tries to help Jim overcome his fear. Then at a game a pass is coming right to Jim, he intercepts the pass! But will he drop the ball? Read to find out.
This book is action-packed. In almost every scene Jim is on the football field in a game. This book is great if you love football, play football, and also if you cant overcome one of your fears in football.
The author, Matt Christopher, always describes Jim Nardi's actions on the field with excellent detail, and expression for every play of the game. I'd recommend this book to kids 9 through 14,also to people who like to read books with great details of expression and football action.
Good football book Oct 31, 2001
This was very good book, and as a football player I realy enjoyed reading this because in some of the game scenes in the book it made me feel like i was realy playing in the game. Some faults in the book i thought came when the writer took like two chapters to describe a game. If he would of shortened it up a little it would have been a little more enjoy able and i would have rated it a perfect 5 stars. Sincerly, Kyle
PRETTY BAD BOOK Jun 12, 2001
