Marcus is a Maths whiz who is not so good at sport. His dad is a self-help author who thinks Marcus can achieve anything he sets his mind to, but always fails to predict the hilarious results. In illustrated diary format, Marcus's gentle, satiric humour and comic drawings will have readers laughing out loud while learning a surprising amount about the various sports at which he tries his hand.

At its heart, this series is about 'having a go'. Whether you love playing sport, or can never quite get the hang of it, you are sure to enjoy laughing along with Marcus as he continues to try his very best, despite a serious lack of natural sporting ability!
