I’ve featured this brilliant biographical series written by Matt and Tom Oldfield, with covers by Dan Leydon, on my blog before (click HERE for a link) and it has proved a massive hit with my own children and any other child I’ve offered them too! This being the case, I am DELIGHTED that there have been some new releases ahead of The World Cup 2018.
Road to the World Cup
This book follows the paths of six footballing heroes as they start preparing themselves to compete in the 2018 World Cup. Kane, Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar, Neuer and Pogba are all featured within and also have their own separate limited international editions. Journey with them as they help bring their international sides through qualification before they go head-to-head in the finals.
In this special limited international edition of Pogba’s career, we watch the lively and well-loved French wonder-kid become one of Europe’s best young players before fulfilling his dream of returning to his boyhood club, Manchester United, for a world-record transfer fee.
At the back of the book, there are links to watch some of Pogba’s top moments and a quiz to test your footballing knowledge.
Whether you know him for being an Argentinian football legend, or for the notorious ‘hand of God’ incident, every football fan’s heard of the one and only Diego Maradona.
Nick-named ‘The Golden Boy,’ this book follows his career as he weaves his way through the opposition’s defence before scoring goal after goal against some of the world’s best defenders. Watch him captain the Argentinian World Cup team in 1986, and score two of the most famous goals in the world – against England!
I really cannot recommend this series enough – informative, fact-filled and utterly engaging. Incapable of staying on the library shelf for very long!
