The Foul is a short story in 5 chapters about a foul during a soccer match. It is told by five different people at the match: a defender, a striker, two rival fans and the referee. They have conflicting views on the incident and the reader can make up his or her own mind about whether the defender should have been sent off or not.
Written in the first person in simple sentences, The Foul should be accessible to most adults and young people who are learning to read. Although the book may well provoke the liveliest discussion amongst soccer fans (at all reading levels), it should also be of interest to those with only a vague knowledge of sport. The book has a vocabulary of about 320 different words. It may not be photocopied.
A companion book of photocopiable exercises to improve reading, spelling and writing skills is available separately.
