Willy the Wizard

Willy the Wizard by Anthony Browne combines both soccer and magic into a tale of a chimp who wants nothing more than to play soccer, but can't because he doesn't have proper shoes.  A man appears in front of the old pie factory and leaves behind his soccer "boots" for Willy.  Willy thinks because they are magical, he's playing well.  But on the day of the big match when Willy can't find his boots, he discovers he is the reason he plays so well.
