Allan Ahlberg

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 to read aloud, Kicking A Ball will not disappoint fans of Allan Ahlberg. 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.

Fantastic -

Although this book is in the young children's section - we have bought it as a Father's Day present along with a World Cup football from his teen sons. Boys - & girls! - are never too old to kick a football for fun. This book delightfully & humorously tells its story with rhyming words & beautiful pictures about the pure pleasure of whiling away time, kicking a ball. A joy to read & look at whatever your age. Beautifully told.
