BILLY SLATER 1: TRY TIME
Josh can play footy. He's fast and fleet-footed and a blur down the sideline. But every time he steps onto the field a stampede of elephant-sized butterflies invade his stomach and he fumbles the ball.
Having his footy-mad grandad screaming from the sidelines doesn't help. To top it off, he blows an easy try and loses his team the opening game of the season. Josh starts thinking about giving up football forever. That is, until NRL legend and Josh's hero, Billy Slater, turns up at training one day.
Can Billy help Josh overcome his nerves and hang onto the ball long enough to score? - See more at: http://www.randomhouse.com.au/books/patrick-loughlin/billy-slater-try-time-9780857982469.aspx#sthash.1FPh4jKb.dpuf

BILLY SLATER 2: BANANA KICK
Junior is the youngest player for the West Hill Ravens. He is also the biggest. Everyone on the team starts to call him Cannonball because, when he makes a bust, he's virtually unstoppable.
Even though Junior is helping his team score more tries than ever, no one seems to be able to see past his size. When team mentor, Billy Slater, sets the Ravens a challenge, Junior's bad feeling gets even worse.
Will Billy be able to help Junior prove there is more to him than meets the eye? - See more at: http://www.randomhouse.com.au/books/patrick-loughlin/billy-slater-2-banana-kick-9780857982667.aspx#sthash.0Vs0jFrO.dpuf
BILLY SLATER 3: SHOW AND GO
Corey is one of the best players on team and everyone knows it, especially Corey. While he scores a lot of tries, he doesn't win many friends. Corey thinks his footy skills give him licence to pick on anyone who isn't as good as him, and his teammates are getting sick of it. When he makes a bet with C. C., the West Hill Ravens fullback, things really start to spin out of control.
Can team mentor Billy Slater show Corey that great players aren't always the ones that score the most points? - See more at: http://www.randomhouse.com.au/books/patrick-loughlin/billy-slater-3-9780857982681.aspx#sthash.c5sBhulc.dpuf
BILLY SLATER 4: CHIP AND CHASE
Liam is the captain of the West Hill Ravens, and the heart and soul of the team. He lives, breathes and sleeps footy. The only problem is that it doesn't leave him much time for anything else.
Now his schoolwork is suffering and his parents are on his back. He may even have to quit the team. And without their captain, the Ravens' chances of making the finals look grim.
Can Billy convince Liam that working with Ravi, the Ravens' inexperienced reserve player, is the key to saving the team's season?
