Write a Review Wednesday- Sergio Saves the Game

Okay, I think I might be in love with Edel Rodriguez. I met him Sunday at Books NJ, a lovely book festival held in Paramus, NJ. What an incredibly talented guy! He is the author-illustrator of Sergio Makes a Splash and it's sequel, Sergio Saves the Game! Both books are adorable! (and I am a tough critic!)

I was not at all surprised to find out that Mr. Rodriguez is represented by the highly selective Emily van Beek of Pippin Properties. Yes, he's that good.

In Sergio Saves the Game, Sergio is a fantastic soccer player... in his dreams. In real life, he trips and slips and slides and shoots and scores. For the other team! This book will have your kids laughing and rooting for the feisty, lovable Sergio in the championship game against the big, bad Seagulls.

What a gem.

I can't wait for Sergio's next adventure!

OK, if he's repped by Emily van Beek, his books are a definite must-read.

Ditto what Suzanne said--love to hear more about the BooksNJ festival. I was at a bday party for my nephews!

Sergio sounds just like my daugher--always scoring for the other team!
