The Story of the World Cup

Today we are reviewing this fun new book, the Story of the World Cup by Richard Brassey from Orion Publishing RRP £4.99. This book is a great little fact book full of everything you might like to know about the game of football, and the World Cup which will dominate our TV in just one months time.

From the origins of the game in and how it got its name right up to the greatest World Cup scorers and famous players this is a great little book. I particularly love the little Mini story of Pickles and the stolen cup, I am sure that this book will keep even the non football lovers reading. I know the boy likes football, but cant understand his friends who are mad on it. But then I don’t think they understand how mad he is about Fencing!

So if your children want to find out more about the Story Of The World Cup, or even the previous book The Story of The Olympics, then why not pick up a copy. Here is the boy explaining what he likes about the book in his short Vlog, Enjoy.
