Brady Brady books are sports — with heart!

Brady and his friends just want to kick their football and have a bit of fun. But everything they do upsets old Mr. Luddy.

Mr. Luddy’s the crankiest, meanest neighbour ever — and all for no good reason! Or so Brady thinks, until he makes a connection with his neighbour. And once they start talking, they realize they’re really on the same team.

The Brady Brady series is much loved by teachers and coaches for its engaging character education themes. Brady Brady and the Cranky Kicker focuses on community and connection.
