For anyone who can't see a ball without wanting to kick it, head it, shoot it, or boot it!
'Not eating an ice-cream
Or riding a bike
No - kicking a ball
Is what I like.'
'What I like best, yes, most of all
in my whole life is . . . kicking a ball.
A wonderful rhyming story, with narration by Allan Ahlberg himself, Kicking A Ball will not disappoint. First written as a poem, the little boy in the story has been brought to life perfectly by artist Sebastien Braun. Every parent will be able to immediately relate to the simple joy felt by a boy simply kicking a ball, and how there is nothing else quite like it.
The incomparable Allan Ahlberg takes us on a journey from childhood to fatherhood full of humour, warmth, friendship . . . and football.
