Review:

Friendly Matches is poetry for children at its best, combining wit and wisdom with occasionally heartbreaking humour tinged with sadness. And the real joy of this fine collection by Allan Ahlberg is that boys will simply love it (no matter if they are 7 or 67).

This neat little book is packed with 29 poems about the ups and downs of football, following the boys who want to play for England, to the kids who don't get picked for the teams in the playground, through to school football matches and games in the park: dreamers galore, waiting to score that all important goal for England.

Magical stuff from the man who brought the rip-roaring Heard It in the Playground and the simply superb Please Mrs Butler to glorious life, Friendly Matches is set to become an absolute playground classic. (Age 7 and over)--Susan Harrison

Review:

An appealing collection of football poems covering many aspects of the game, written in a wide variety of verse forms.
