Henry Heckelbeck Never Cheats (Paperback)
Henry uses magic while playing soccer in this second Henry Heckelbeck adventure!
Henry Heckelbeck is just like any other normal kid. He plays soccer. He isn’t a huge fan of homework. He even has an older sister, Heidi.
What’s not so normal about Henry is his family. His sister and mom are magic.
Not Henry, though…he’s just a normal kid. Or is he?
Henry Heckelbeck is excited to start the soccer season. He really wants to be the teams’ goalie this year, but there’s a new star player on the team, Max Maplethorpe. Is magic the answer to being the MVP on the soccer field, or would using his Book of Spells be cheating? What’s a wizard to do?
With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Henry Heckelbeck chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.
