‘Fantastic Football Poems,’ by John Foster and Korky Paul.

The perfect collection of football poems to enjoy regardless of the highs and lows of the World Cup.


This cracking collection of carefully curated poems has been in training for this year’s World Cup and is back and better than ever!  From the best-selling poet, John Foster and illustrated by award-winning illustrator Korky Paul, this anthology is a great introduction to the wonderful world of poetry.

Featuring a weird and wacky variety of football scenarios, there is something here for everyone: Cyril the Centipede, The Goalie With Expanding Hands, The Anaconda Wanderers….

An excellent addition to any bookcase, with lots of humorous illustrations and witty poems – guaranteed to amuse.

Library Girl.
