Synopsis

Football by David Orme

Do you want to be a great football player? Or are you happy just to support your local team? Either way, this is the perfect book. Explore the history of football, find out which are the greatest teams - and who are the greatest players. Then try the Football Quiz to see how much you know. Then read a story about the greatest footballer ever (or is he?). It's 'Rob of the Rovers'. This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
