'"Described as a ‘Horrible Histories’ for football, I fully expect this to drop to bits from constant reading in the near future. Great fun!” ' Stephen King, School Library Association

'“[…] the Football School series from Walker is great for those kids who aren’t into fiction. Using football to teach kids about the world around them, with chapters on biology, maths and history they’re quirky, funny and genuinely engaging. I can’t say that about many of the reference books from my childhood.” ' The Bookseller
