A groundbreaking new series from two bestselling writers that teaches you about the world through football.

You will find the answers to these questions and more in chapters on subjects such as history, geography, biology and maths. Illustrated throughout with hilarious cartoons and filled with laugh-out-loud gags this is the perfect book for any boy or girl who loves football. Your coaches at Football School, Alex Bellos and Ben Lyttleton, are journalists, broadcasters and award-winning science and sports writers. Their knowledge, enthusiasm and engaging writing make them the perfect team to teach you how to score with your head.

I read it to Jack the reader aged 9 aged 9

Oh my goodness, Jack absolutely loved this book, this is perfect for a football fan aged 9. The book is written in chapters, like a timetable, so Biology - lots of Poo references here, Maths - team formulation etc each chapter ends with a quiz, my husband endured it my 13 year old was less keen!!
I will be buying this for some of Jack's friends, it is so good with lots of facts written in a very engaging way for certainly my boy of 9.
