Specky Magee by Felice Arena and Garry Lyon

Interested in football? Do you play football? Well, then you might enjoy the Specky Magee series. Twelve-year old Simon Magee is a huge Aussie Rules fan, in fact he's downright footy mad. He is a champion full-forward on the school football team and he has earned the name Specky as a result of the spectacular marks he takes. He's just loving life, except for the fact that his dad won't come and watch him play his favourite sport. Unfortunately, all his family hate the game which is why Specky is confused when he finds a photgraph of himself as a baby dressed in footy clothes. And...no-one wants to give him a straight answer when he inquires about this. There is a great website which goes with this series which is worth a visit:
