Fearsome Fred always took the new ball

Cricket Our Great Summer Game is the great way of introducing Cricket to children in a rhyming story. Two vibrant pictures and eight lines of rhyme explain the role of all the key players in a game of cricket, including opening batsmen, tailenders, fast bowlers, spinners and even the umpires, using the terminology of the great game.
Finished with a diagram of the pitch highlighting various fielding positions, explanations of how the batsmen can be dismissed and what the key umpire signals mean, this is a fun way of giving children a good understanding of the game.
