Former legendary NFL’s owner’s granddaughter, Marnie Schneider, has written a children’s book, “Football Freddie & Fumble the Dog,” all about game day in the Carolinas, and we have 5 copies to giveaway to 5 lucky Smarties!
Football Freddie & Fumble the Dog
“Football Freddie and Fumble the Dog: Gameday in the Carolinas” is about a young football fan named Fredericka (“Freddie” for short) and her dog Fumble as they take readers on a short tour of the history and highlights of the Carolinas, culminating in an exciting pro-football game in Charlotte, the home of the Panthers. The book, written by Marnie Schneider, granddaughter of the former Philadelphia Eagles owner, Leonard Tose, and her teenage daughter, Goldie, allows the pair to merge their love of sports, knowledge of local history, and passion for helping others to educate readers, no matter their age, gender or location.
About the Series
The “Football Freddie and Fumble the Dog” series serves as Marnie’s love letters to the fans and towns she experienced while growing up traveling with her grandfather’s team and her family. Throughout the book, Freddie and Fumble tour a variety of historical sites in the Carolinas including the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge in Charleston, the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences’ dinosaur exhibit, the site of the first flight in Kitty Hawk, and a stop to thank service members at Fort Bragg, before ending up in the Queen City to cheer on their local teams. Interesting facts and delightful illustrations bring the states’ histories to life on the page as the readers joins their journey.
