Benny Football Buddy

Benny takes new chances.

Benny wants to start a football practice.

He wants to play on the team.

‘Sure thing,’ says the coach.

‘Chill out, you dork,’ says Adam.

So what should Benny do?

Benny feels safest with his teddy bear. But when he has to put teddy away for a little while, he suddenly discovers how brave he is all by himself!

This is the third book in the Benny series.
