Summary

The Gaelic footballer who's won nearly every prize in the game:

Including 5 All-Irelands & 8 All-Stars.
'You need a boot to kick and hands and shoulders to mark

your opposition. But without a sharp brain, you'll never make

it as a Kerry footballer.'
Follow Colm from his days as a tiny, freckle-faced kid – the youngest of seven in a GAA-mad family from Killarney – all the way to Croke Park, where he won five All-Ireland titles. This is the story of how a boy who everyone said wasn't big enough or strong enough to wear the green and gold jersey of Kerry became one of the greatest Gaelic footballers of all time.
Available since: 08/12/2019.
Print length: 176 pages.

    Lulu is getting the sister she never asked for in this hilarious audiobook filled with hilarious hijinks and feisty twists from Judith Viorst. 
    Lulu has received the worst. News. Ever. She's getting a baby sister. No one ever asked her opinion on this debacle. But she'll tell you anyway because she no how, no way, no thank you wants a sibling. 
    Undeterred, to prepare Lulu for big sisterhood, her parents bribe—ahem, ask—Lulu to attend Camp Sisterhood, aka big-sister training camp. As a sister in training (SIT), Lulu is assigned a variety of temporary little "siblings" who are supposed to be so much fun Lulu will become excited to have a permanent sibling of her own. 
    Well, no one ever said Camp Sisterhood was supposed to teach Lulu how to be a good big sister, so Lulu resolves to be a bad big sister. She insults her little siblings. She taunts them with secrets. She even tricks one of them into carrying both of their backpacks up a mountain! 
    But no matter what Lulu does, she can't shake the little terrors. Then some BITs (brothers in training) from the neighboring Camp Brotherhood start picking on Lulu's siblings, and Lulu responds by doing her red-faced, steam-coming-out-of-her-ears thing and showing those BITs who's boss! 
    After all, Lulu's siblings may be duds, but they're her duds, and sisters have to stick together. Besides, in the end, Lulu figures having a little sister probably won't be as bad as a getting a tooth pulled. Probably.
