Get That Ball!

By Judy Corbalis
Illustrated by Korky Paul

A hilarious sport-themed adventure from award-winning Judy Corbalis and Korky Paul.

Tom and his gran are playing penalty shoot-out when things go wrong and the football escapes... Now, wherever it leads them, from the park to the high street and beyond to the depths of the ocean and way up high in the sky, Tom and Gran must "Get that ball!"

  • This find and chase adventure celebrates the bond between grandson and gran.
  • Korky Paul's vibrant illustrations bring movement and life to the story, and children will love poring over the detail on every page.
  • Korky Paul is the illustrator of the famous Winnie the Witch series, which has sold over 5 million books and is now an animated series on Channel 5's Milkshake.
