  • For football-mad children

    The Football School books have been going for several years. They started as books that combined different subjects from school with football. Lately, they have moved on to different areas of the great game, this one being 50 true football tales that shook the world Whilst some of the tales are jaw-dropping I’m not sure that they all shook the world. From a Chilean cheating goal-keeper who tried to get Brazil disqualified to a Russian footballer being sentenced to ten years in prison for praising western Europe, but inside he was treated like royalty by both the inmates and guards. Some of the stories are from many years ago, whilst others are bang up to date. The book is full of black and white artwork, often hilarious, and snippets of information too. At the back is a forty question quiz on what the reader has learned throughout as well as some pages set up like front pages of newspapers for children to write their own football story in. The book is a wonderful compliment to the rest of the series and with school books, a quiz book, a joke book, puzzle books, star players book, and now this one, I do wonder where the duo can take the series next. Are there still more football stories they haven’t covered? If you have a football-mad child then this is the book to give them. Hopefully, they will enjoy learning all about some of the weird, strange, unusual, heroic, and captivating moments that there has been in the world of football.

    Thanks for your feedback!
