The Smedley Tornadoes football team is the worst team ever! The substitute coach, Miss Viola Swamp, shows up and whips the team into shape. Miss Swamp made the team practice a lot. They had to work hard with their exercises. At the end they had to play against the best team, The Werewolves. You will be surprised at what happens next!

Something I learned from this book is that if you work hard you can win in the end. I liked this book because it has good pictures. My favorite character was Mr. Blandsworth, the principal, because he was really funny when he dressed up like a witch to scare the team. I like the story of this book because it taught me a lesson about working hard.

I would recommend this book to my friends because I think they would like that it is easy to read.
