Everyone will love Maisy’s football game! She and her friends divide into two teams. They do all their warming up exercises before beginning an exciting game. They love kicking and passing and diving and scoring. Luckily, both sides score a goal before the final whistle goes and it is all over. All the friends agree it was a great game!

Synopsis

Maisy Plays Football by Lucy Cousins

Today is a big day for Maisy and her friends as they head to the football pitch. Eddie, Cyril and Maisy are on the red team; Tallulah, Charley and Dotty are on the blue! The referee blows the whistle and they're off! Passing, diving and scoring, what an exciting game! The blue team have scored at half time, but what will happen next and who will score the next goal? Just wait for the final whistle!

With striking football scenes, this brand new First Experience title from Maisy will reinforce the message that taking part is what counts. A perfect read for all little ones preparing to venture onto the football pitch for the very first time, encouraging them to enjoy the game and have fun in an accessible and typically delightful Maisy way.
