Follow Maxx, Rexx and the Stone Valley Saints through a tough (and hilarious) season of soccer mayhem.

"Don’t worry, Rexxy," I said. "The Giants just THINK they’re smart. I bet they’re even dumber than us!" "IMPOSSIBLE!" said Rexxy. Eight teams. Three weeks. One winner! That's the Soccer Knockout competition. And the Saints want to be that winner. But before they even reach the second round, they must beat a team of total geniuses!


Maxx, Rexxy and The Saints are certainly up against it in this soccer match against The Crawlies.

How can they beat the smartest team in the Knockout competition?

It doesn't look promising, especially when The Crawlies have a pelican to help them, but The Saints don’t give up! And maybe Rexxy is smarter than they think...

A great new instalment in the Maxx Rumble series that your emerging readers are sure to love.

This title was included in our May 2014 Primary Fiction Standing Order selection.
