'Ferguson picks up the ball inside the Scottish half and he's off. He skips round England's Dawes. . . nutmegs Bryan. . . shoots. . . and SCORES! Goal for Scotland in the 89th minute of this World Cup quarter-final! England are on their knees. Ferguson sends the Scottish fans crazy. What a player!'

Don't miss a minute of the non-stop action as 10-year-old Calum Ferguson struggles to settle into a new town whilst fighting for his place on the school football team. Scotland Stars F.C. books are packed with excitement on and off the field, as well as loads of extras like character cards to collect and football tips, puzzles and games.

Most people would eagerly take football tips from their hero, and Calum and best friend Leo are no different. When they bump into star striker James Cauldfield at a Premiership match, they soak up his advice on dealing with rival players. Then when a scout comes to watch their next match, they are ready to shine -- as long as nothing goes wrong. . .
