One day at school Eddie, Melody, Liza, and Howie got a new student teacher. His name was Mr. Bogey. He played for the new football called The Bombers. The Bailey Bombers were a good team. Eddie, Melody, Liza, and Howie thought Mr. Bogey was the bogeyman. Mr. Bogey was really big, but he was not the bogeyman.

I liked this book because it is about football and I like football. My favorite character is Mr. Bogey because he plays football. My favorite part is when Eddie, Liza, Melody, and Howie go into the locker room because they meet the players. That sounds like something I'd like to do.

I would recommend this book because it is about football. People who like football would like this book. I think people would like the part when the Bombers become a pro team because it makes me feel happy.
