The Beautiful Game, Paperback Book

The Beautiful Game Paperback

Illustrated by Chris Chalik

Description

At an Old Trafford game, Lennie hears Man U fans chanting about Hillsborough.

Enraged, he joins in with a retaliatory chant about the Munich Disaster of '58.

Appalled, his dad and granddad take Lennie on a whistlestop tour of the dark side of the beautiful game.

Dad and Grandad know only too well the human cost of fan violence and official negligence, having experience racism in football fandom and survived the Hillsborough disaster.Interwoven with lots of facts about the history of football, the great disasters of the twentieth century and the black footballers who blazed a trail in the UK, this book is ideal to engage reluctant reading football fans.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+
