Simon Mugford, Football Superstars
Filled with quizzes, stats and little-known facts, plus illustrated and told with all the fun of a Tom Gates novel, the Football Superstars series is perfect for young readers five and up.
Is Lucy Bronze your ultimate football heroine? The current England lionesses vice-captain is a three-time Women's Champions League champion with superclub Lyon. She is a two-time French League winner and also earned third place for England at the Women's World Cup in 2015.
Playing in her best position as a roving right-back, Bronze loves to get forward on the pitch and has scored some sensational volleys in huge matches for club and country! Her story is one of defying the odds: she overcame career-threatening knee injuries and was told she would never again play for England to become one of the finest and most-decorated English players in women's football. An inspiration to young girls and boys alike.
The Football Superstars series is aimed at building a love of reading from a young age, with fun cartoons, inspirational stories, a simple narrative style and a cast of characters chipping in with quotes, jokes and comments.
