The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a great fun flap book packed with interesting information about popular sports, particularly those taking place at the 2012 Olympics. Each scene has several flaps to lift to find out even more about the sport - such as what goes on behind the scenes at a busy stadium, how athletes train, interesting bits of sports kit, or what lies underneath a football pitch or ice rink. Scenes include an Olympic swimming pool, an athletics stadium, a ski slope, and a cycling velodrome.

About the Author

Rob Lloyd Jones

Rob never wanted to be a writer when he grew up. He wanted to be a fireman. Or a polar explorer. Or a deep-sea diver. And sometimes a pirate too. But, when it came down to it, he didn’t much like fire, or ice, or sharks, or even swords. So he decided to write about them instead. Since then, he’s written several books on subjects ranging from animals at war to the history of Islam. He loves it. But he still dreams about being a fireman.
