An excerpt from “Soccer Tales-Legend of the Shoelace Monster”

Posted By: Robin Materese

Below is an excerpt from “Soccer Tales-Legend of the Shoelace Monster” by Lewis Freimark

“Nations come together every four years to play a World Cup of soccer. The United States is thought to be the next great cradle of soccer civilization. So who better to nurture the soccer babies than the Shoelace Monster himself?

The Shoelace Monster came from Brazil to the United States, riding musical notes of the rainforest. After coming to America, he started following the children of the Vipers soccer team. With shoelaces flying the children of the Vipers learned to love and play the world’s game. Nothing could stop their passion and hilarity, not even an evil referee and her boss, the Big Commish. Follow along with the Shoelace Monster as he recalls the best times of his life with his friends the Vipers soccer team.”

Lewis Freimark will be an exhibiting author at the 2016 Gaithersburg Book Festival on May 21, 2016.

  1. Sorry I missed you guys this year. The rain, the drive and various maladies prevented my attendance.
