For twenty years Specky Magee has been one of the biggest selling and most popular children's book series in Australia. The eight books in the series chronicle the life and times of young AFL legend in the making Simon 'Specky' Magee.
In 2008 the series was listed by readers in a nationwide Angus & Robertson poll as the most popular series in Australia after the Harry Potter and Roald Dahl books.
The series written by Felice Arena and AFL legend Garry Lyon has won
five Australian Children's Choice Book Awards, and set the bench-mark for popular children's sports fiction in Australia.
