9780152163921: Preston's Goal!: A Preston Pig Story

Preston, the world’s most brilliant soccer player, is on his way to the store. He takes his ball and dribbles (right through a flower garden), shoots (hitting Billy the Bully), and scores (knocking off a police officer’s hat). But Preston doesn’t realize that Mr. Wolf, who keeps getting blamed for the pig’s messes, is in hot pursuit--and getting closer every minute!

About the Author:

COLIN MCNAUGHTON lives in London.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3-Heads up, readers! Preston's got the ball and his aim is right on target. While en route to the grocery to get bread for his mother, the young pig plays out a glorious soccer game with himself as star. Oblivious to the world around him, he is completely involved in his play. However, when his skillful maneuvers and accurate hits find unsuspected targets, the blame is put on a hungry wolf who has been following the pig with an eye on dinner. Even in the store, which Preston nearly demolishes with his "GOAL" antics, Mr. Wolf is once more the loser. McNaughton uses a light palette and easy lines that work well in a story remindful of the shenanigans and fast pace of Saturday morning cartoons. This chuckle-filled comedy with a twist at the end is sure to score points with young sports fans.
