Review

"Any boy or girl who is showing an interest in cricket and likes reading should be pushed in the direction of this book.' -- Simon Lister, Wisden Cricketer, November 2007

"If you're a cricket-mad parent and want to get your child as passionate about the game as you are, save yourself a lot of time and probably fruitless effort and instead let Tim de Lisle do the business for you. He and his book are much more likely to succeed." -- Tony Hodson, Sport, 12 October 2007

"This is the book the game has needed for far too long... Buy it for someone you want to infect." -- Rob Steen, Cricinfo.com, October 13, 2007

'A comprehensive introduction to cricket for young or new fans.'
-- Good Book Guide

'If you're a cricket-mad parent and want to get your child(boy or girl) as passionate about cricket as you are, save yourself a lot of time...and let Tim de Lisle do the business for you. He and his book are much more likely to suceed - trust us.' -- Sport (Main)

'Incomparable really, different planet stuff. It is comprehensive without being bewildering, colourful but not showy, confident but never esoteric. It is also superbly designed.' -- Wisden Cricketer

'This is the book the game has needed for far too long. It is also a priceless example of dumbing-up. Buy it for someone you want to infect.'
-- Cricinfo.com (October 2007)

'Time de Lisle's 'Young Wisden' is a cracking idea. A guide to cricket for kids - when they can wrestle is from their parents' grasp, that is. Stats, laws and dates are all in here, but so are celebrated sledges, roly-poly captains and wacky wicket keepers.' -- Time Out

Synopsis

"Young Wisden" is the perfect introduction to one of the most enjoyable world sports - cricket. Packed with colour photographs and illustrations, this beautifully laid out book really brings the game to life. The author takes a wry look at every aspect of the game that a new fan could wish to know about, including: the basics - from how to read the scorecard to a crash course in the language; types of cricket - the sport in all its forms, from beach cricket to the five day test; batsmen, bowlers, fielders, keepers and thinkers - what it takes to be great in each position and plenty of info on the best there has been the; world of cricket - the test nations, the great grounds, and the fans on tour; and, history, humour and numbers - the playing greats, the grudge matches, the records, and villains and tricksters. Written for children, there are sure to be plenty of adults taking a look over their shoulder at this wonderful introduction to cricket.
