The Ladybird Book of Football is a gem from the Ladybird vintage archive. First published in 1964, this is a classic Ladybird hardback book, packed with information about football for all ages. This new edition, published to mark the European Football Championship, is exactly the same as the original, with a dust jacket and beautifully reproduced images.
