‘AB hopped over the boundary rope and onto the field, grinning at the sight and sound of a packed Wanderers Stadium. He swung his bat from side to side and listened to the crowd roaring his name.’ So begins the wonderfully entertaining story of the rise to fame of one of South Africa’s favourite sporting stars. Written specifically for youngsters aged 10 –14, it takes the reader close to all the action, and the ups and downs.

AB was already building a name as a great schoolboy tennis and rugby player, but when he decided to focus on cricket the word spread quickly about a talent that could not be contained.

With two brothers a lot older than him, AB learned early how to play hard and never give up. In this inspiring story we watch as AB progresses through high school, then ’varsity, and learns how to play against the best. In his first Test series, AB struggles and wonders if he’s good enough to make it at this level. However, the outcome is an inspiration to sports fans and readers who love a good story.

Through many highs and lows, he developed into an international sporting star – one who stayed true to his background while changing the nature of South African cricket for the better.

When Alex can't play cricket with his friends because of lockdown, he finds comfort in cricket stories. He asks Dad to tell him the story of how the symbol of the Bear came to be on the Warwickshire badge. Dad doesn't disappoint, with a tale involving bears, shield warriors and the game of turnip ball (which is remarkably similar to cricket!). This story contains important topical messages about looking after each other and being part of a 'family'. All royalties from this book will be given to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity and NSPCC Childline, via the Edgbaston Foundation. Covid-19 lockdown meant that hugging Grandma and Grandad could not happen for many weeks, but the mutual love never waned. We have been strengthened by support given and received from those with a shared love for our wider interests, including cricket. Rachael and Jim have, in their words and illustrations, captured fantastically why being part of the 'Bears' Family always makes us feel so proud, never more than in 2020. This story contains something for all ages to appreciate and treasure. Norman Gascoigne, former Chairman Warwickshire CCC

Carter Jones is astonished early one morning when he finds a real English butler, bowler hat and all, on the doorstep. He announces he is here to stay to help the Jones family, which is a little bit broken.

In addition to figuring out middle school, Carter has to adjust to the unwelcome presence of this new know-it-all adult in his life and navigate the butler's notions of decorum and love of cricket. And ultimately, when his burden of grief and anger from the past can no longer be ignored, Carter learns that a burden becomes lighter when it is shared.

Sparkling with humour, this insightful and compassionate story is the latest from the award-winning author of Orbiting Jupiter.

When Alex's bowling hits a rough patch, his sister tells him he needs to be more aggressive. Alex doesn't think much of this advice and embarks on his own journey to discover what kind of preparation will work best for him. Can Alex sort out his bowling in time for the important match against the dreaded Smasher Jones and his team next week? This story touches on the themes of mindfulness, resilience and the sometimes underrated art of just being yourself. At Chance to Shine, our aim is to improve the lives of young people through participation in cricket. In schools, we take our work in the classroom as seriously as our work in the playground.

Beautifully Illustrated by former Warwickshire cricket captain Jim Troughton, this book tells two stories. The first is the warming tale of a young boy about to play in his first cricket match, and how he finds the strength to conquer his nerves. Interwoven into this first story is the one that inspires young Alex on the eve of his first match. It is the legend of Morvidus, the ancient Lord of Warwickshirc and King of the Britons. The legend of Morvidus gives us the enduring symbol of the ragged staff, still memorably placed on the Warwickshire cricket shirt and worn with pride by Warwickshire cricket players of all ages. All royalties from this book will be given directly to the Warwickshire Cricket Board to support youth cricket projects at all age groups and levels.

Cricket Our Great Summer Game is the great way of introducing Cricket to children in a rhyming story. Two vibrant pictures and eight lines of rhyme explain the role of all the key players in a game of cricket, including opening batsmen, tailenders, fast bowlers, spinners and even the umpires, using the terminology of the great game.

Finished with a diagram of the pitch highlighting various fielding positions, explanations of how the batsmen can be dismissed and what the key umpire signals mean, this is a fun way of giving children a good understanding of the game.
