Reading for Pleasure


When twelve-year-old Marcus kicks his favourite ball over the school fence, he knows he is never getting it back. Nothing that goes over that wall ever comes back! But the following morning at Breakfast Club, Marcus receives a mysterious note inviting him to Breakfast Club Investigators. Among the tasty servings of toast, cereal and juice, he is soon pulled into an exciting adventure with his new friends to solve the mystery and get his football back!
