The Selwood Boys

HarperCollins announces major new children’s series starring AFL heroes and brothers Troy, Adam, Joel and Scott Selwood for ages 7-12!

Just in time for Christmas comes the new must-have series for sports-mad kids!

Like so many Australian kids, the Selwood brothers grew up playing footy. On having their childhood escapades transformed into exciting novels, the Selwoods say, ‘We are so excited to see our childhood come to life in this junior fiction series that will hopefully inspire more Aussie children to read books’.

Having worked closely with the Selwoods to develop Australia’s next big junior fiction series, Wilson says, ‘The Selwood boys are as good at storytelling as they are at finding the footy. When we spent time together, they painted a vivid picture of a fun and sport-filled childhood in Bendigo, Victoria. They shared their pranks, their games, their ambitions and their sibling rivalries.

The third and fourth books will follow in March 2017. HarperCollins Children’s Books aims to inspire and nurture a lifelong love of reading by publishing the best books for children of all ages.

    I have bought these books for my future grandchildren but I had to read them because Joel is my favourite player. They were brilliant. I have read all 4. Is there going to be anymore as they still growing up and it would be nice to know what happens next.
