Description

The Boy Who Cries ¡Falta! is Tony, the soccer-loving Dallas boy. Him and his Dad loved to watch Fútbol together. From this, he discovered how to fake a foul.

You have no idea how cute this book is!

A young enthusiastic boy tries to play his best at soccer but he gets disheartened in the field ashe did fake being hurt and he does learn a lesson in a big way.

Love the illustrations.

Thank you, BooksGoSocial, for the advance reading copy.

a cute spin on The Boy Who Cried Wolf- in the eyes of a soccer player. Overall, this book had a good message- do not fake being hurt.
I like the added Spanish throughout the text- great way to expose children to another language. Any soccer fan would enjoy reading this story!

a really fun book about soccer and a very dramatic boy. it's telling you that if you make a habit of lying, then people won't believe you, ever. the latina mix is interesting, and the concept also fitting with the world cup happening

I received this ARC in exchange for my honest review.

This is a fun retelling of the popular boy who cried wolf. Love the inclusion of another culture!
