December ReadingEvery month, we name a huge Jamie Johnson fan as a Fan Of The Month! This fan could be anyone, from anywhere around the globe. He, she or they could come to our attention in several diverse ways, for example, at a school Dan attends, a piece of writing he or she sends to Dan, or a fan-mail or letter that they have sent. We like to have an interview with the winner as well.

Congratulations to the newest JJ Fan Of The Month – Olly! Here is our interview with the man himself!

Name:-  Oliver Skitt, known as Olly to everyone

How old are you?:-  10 years old

Where are you from:- Dudley, West Midlands

How did you hear about the JJ books?:- Other children in my class were reading them, so we bought Kick Off to read.

What is your favourite Jamie Johnson book and why?:- Golden Goal is my favourite book, because the story is unexpected, especially with the car accident. I also like the fact that Archie Fairclough trains Jamie without him realizing it. I enjoyed this book the most; it made me want to keep reading to see what happens next.

Where is the most unusual place you have ever read a JJ book?:- On a ferry on the way to the Isle of Wight, going on holiday.

Which football team do you support?:- Arsenal

Which player reminds you most of JJ?:- Mesut Özil, because I think he plays football like Jamie.

What made you get into football?:- I can remember playing football with my older brothers Dan and Jake when I was very young and just kept playing.

You are the manager of a 5 aside football team. Which 5 players, real or fictional, will you sign and in which formation will they play?:- Ronaldo on the left, Neymar Jr on the right, Mesut Özil in the middle, Manuel Neuer in goal and, of course, Jamie Johnson!

If you wrote a JJ book yourself, what would you call it?:- Hat Trick Hero

Do you have any special football skills?:- I am working hard to perfect a rainbow flick.

You are offered to go to three schools- The Grove, Kingfield or the Foxborough Academy School. Which one will you join?:- The Foxborough Academy school so I can practice my football skills!
