I read it to LucasChops aged 7 aged 7

5 stars
We're not massive football fans but this is a really fun book.  Lots of questions with multiple choice answers (most of the entertainment for me came from the wildly made up incorrect answers which were often really funny!) it's great for picking up and perusing for 10 minutes or so.  
There are lots of fun illustrations throughout and it would be a great reference point for footie fans

This book was fun to read alone and share with the family, even Mum who does not know anything about football. A good mix of questions too.

With the Russian World Cup kicking off on 14th June 2018, Football School: The Amazing Quiz Book, has been perfectly timed and is a must for any young football fan who wants to learn more about the game, players, stadiums, mascots, etc.

The book is part of the ‘Football School’ series which educates young people using football.

The whole book contains lots and lots of multiple-choice questions split into 15 categories (the answers are at the back). All the questions are football related and are surrounded by small, very amusing illustrations drawn in comic book style.

There will be plenty of questions that even the grown-ups won’t know, so this is a great book for the whole family. Perhaps use it as a game, see who can get the most questions right. For example – ‘The first ever World Cup mascot was created for the 1966 World Cup in England. What was his name and what animal was he?

A) World Cup Willie (Lion), B) World Cup Winston (Dog), C) World Cup Wayne (Unicorn) or D) World Cup Warren (Rabbit)

It is a fab book that would be perfect for any football fan. It will have them reading and learning at the same time, what a great combination!.

I have taken a big interest in football lately, so I was looking forward to this book, and liked the fact that its a quiz book. Even though I don't have a massive amount of football knowledge, I was looking forward to it, as I would learn new facts. I liked that I could check what questions I got right or wrong, as the answers were in the back of the book. You can fill it out at your own pace. I liked that it wasn't just boring questions, there were interesting and funny ones too.

My 10 year old son may have actually found a book he actually enjoys! He took this book on holiday with us, and was constantly reading out questions, laughing as he read out the possible answers, whilst trying to see how much football knowledge his Dad and Grampy really had! He's obsessed with football, and doesn't particularly enjoy reading so this book was pretty perfect in his view! Absolutely brilliant! Thanks Toppsta!

We're not massive football fans but loved reading this book. It is crammed with facts that are absolutely fascinating (As well as some that are completely bonkers!). The style is really engaging and it was great to remember some of the weirder facts when hearing about the recent world cup!

My son has recently got into football, and has read one of the other books from this series, so I thought that he would like this book. There are a number of chapters on various football related topics. Each has a two page introduction to the topic followed by several pages of questions with multiple answers to choose the correct answer from.

Initially he found it a bit frustrating - as a bit of a fact fiend, and as someone who does not know much about football, he found the format difficult because he had to keep going to the back of the book to find out the answers. If he had known more about football, he might have instead found the book challenging in a good way! He would have also preferred to have a book full of facts which he could read, absorb and learn.

Having said all that, he has since receiving the book, returned to it a number of times and has taken it to School to show and share with his friends. I think the format doesn’t really suit my son  and he has asked me to get more books from this series as he is very keen to learn more about football.
