Foul Play: Brazil - A World Cup adventure story

Every week day during the 2014 football World Cup, author Tom Palmer wrote a new chapter of his story Foul Play: Brazil. The 24-episode cliff-hanger story responded to the events of the World Cup as they happened (on and off the pitch!) and was published before 8am every weekday from Wednesday 11 June, drawing to an exciting conclusion on Monday 14 July. 

Each chapter is roughly 700 words long (a five to ten minute classroom read). Click on the link below to read the story...
