Book Description

1 Mar 2007 Poems (Oxford University Press)
Here is a collection of fabulously funny poems put together by John Foster and illustrated with creative genius by Korky Paul. There are poems by a range of authors about all kinds of football matches - including meteorite footballs, football on the moon, a witches versus wizard's football match, the goalie with expanding hands, and the Stone Age man who invented football. Guaranteed to delight, this is a perfect introduction to poetry either at home or at school.
