Description - Oshie by Jon Blake
Oshie is an engaging, funny, enthusiastic and often rebellious boy - it just so happens he has cerebral palsy.
In these four stories - from Oshie's starting at a new school and being shunned for his inability to play football to saving the day on the pitch - he wins the admiration, and hearts, of his classmates for the abilities which compensate for, and partially arise, out of his disability.
