Read about your football heroes!

It’s the start of the World Cup so what better way to get a child into reading than to give them a book about one of their favourite footballing heroes?

Matt and Tom Oldfield have curated a series of titles based on the world’s best footballers, from Diego Maradona to David Beckham, from Lionel Messi to Cristiano Ronaldo. The books aren’t simple fact files, though: they relate the life story of each player in a semi-fictional biographical style, starting from when the footballers were children all the way to their superstar status! This gives a lovely, human touch to these sporting celebrities that children will enjoy – it makes their heroes seem a little more human.

I am about to release the Messi and Beckham titles in the Library, but I doubt they will be on the shelves for long.
