Random House Australia, 2011.
(Age: 9-12) Star League is an appealing action series filled with humour due the six unlikely main characters, each of whom has a quirky special ability. Jay the movie star has a special way of helping people work together. He has his work cut out. Not only does he work as an actor to keep up normal appearances, but he leads the Star League team comprising a werewolf, a ninja, a zombie, a robot and an animancer. Written in the first person, each book in the series tells a good verses evil adventure involving one of the Star League characters.
These books are filled with energetic twists and turns that surprise the reader. These books will appeal to a variety of tastes among middle and upper primary readers. Could be a useful quick read for the slow or reluctant older reader.
