Hawthorn superstar Cyril Rioli has again partnered with writer David Lawrence to children’s book – Fox Swift & The Golden Boot, the third instalment of the children’s series.
The book follows the adventures of Fox Swift, a teenage boy who visits the Tiwi Islands with his best mate Lewis Rioli, plays a thrilling game with the locals, is nearly trampled by a water buffalo and has a close encounter with an extremely hungry crocodile.
Fox Swift and the Golden Boot tackles serious issues including racial intolerance, bullying, cheating and bad sportsmanship but, with Cyril Rioli’s tips and drills, a wonderfully wacky storyline and witty illustrations from comedic writer Jo Gill, there is a lot of fun to be had along the way – making it the perfect book for any child with a passion for Aussie Rules, or just a passion for a good read.
Rioli has played more than 140 games and kicked more than 190 goals for the Hawthorn Football Club. He is a three-time premiership player with the Hawks and was an All-Australian in 2012.
The book is available for $16.95 and can be purchased here.
