ROVERS ON THE ROAD! On Tour is the fourth book in the football-tastic Roy of the Rovers fiction series. Part of the second season, this exciting series is written by award-winning author Tom Palmer.

Roy Race is living the dream.

With his family life hitting a rough patch and everything in flux at Mel Park, it’s time for Roy of the Rovers to fight for his team, his family – and his career in football…

Praise for the Roy of the Rovers series:

EPIC! – Match of the Day Magazine

I love the way that they are about so much more
than football: they are about heart, values and family. Both graphic novel and
fiction titles are compelling, engaging and a lot of fun. Lace up and get
reading. – Jim Sells, Programme manager for Sport & Literacy, National
Literacy Trust

Read with my 7 year old who is football mad,
really enjoyed it and left us wanting to read the next one in the series! – GoodReads
