Iniesta book review by tom and Matt Oldfield!
When my son asked for these, I was pleased he wanted books but worried they'd be of limited quality such as those 'written' by a certain former Chelsea player. Fear not: they are engaging and genuinely interesting - even if you're not a football fan. My reluctant reader has been working steadily through the books on Ronaldo, Messi, Aguero and Sanchez.
My Shortlist. Book an Author. Join Us. Our fun, action-packed biographies tell the exciting life stories of the world's greatest footballers, from Maradona through to Messi, from Beckham through to Kane. I also work with schools, charities and organisations The National Literacy Trust, The National Football Museum, Beanstalk, Football Beyond Borders to deliver literacy workshops aimed at football fans and reluctant readers.
Born and raised in Southampton, England, the brothers grew up playing, watching and talking soccer. The books focus on Gareth Bale, Wayne Rooney, and Raheem Sterling, and they paint a picture of how each of the players grew up and overcame challenges to become Premier League stars. Tom is a freelance author who lives in Toronto, Canada. He writes biographies on major sports figures. He has been writing for a while.
