  • A history of football in a travel size pocket book
  • Officially licensed by Ladybird Penguin Books

Ever wondered where the beautiful game earned its notorious popularity and fame? Now you can reminisce on sporting history with the Personalised Ladybird Football Book, an iconic re-release of the 1964 children’s classic.

This story provides an engaging read on how football came about, transporting you to a time where jackets were used as goalposts and stones became footballs. You can even learn how football gave birth to Rugby, with William Webb Ellis’ disregard for the rules and preferred running with the ball. But this classic pocket book remembers a time when men all over the world united to play the day cup finals, or as we know it today – The World Cup.

Educational and riveting, the Personalised Story of Football Book is a classic piece of British literature, nostalgic of a time built-in to our childhood. Offering a retrospective view on the world’s most celebrated game, this easy to read story is complimented by beautifully illustrated images, creatively incorporating the recipient’s Name into every image.

Perfect for any football fanatic, this Personalised Ladybird Football Book reminds us football was an essential part of a British boy’s childhood, and no matter the broken shins or dreadful rubber balls – “Nearly all boys like to play football”.

Your Personalised Story of Football Book

You can personalise this Story of Football with Any Name up to 12 characters and featured on each wonderful illustration. You can add A Message up to 80 characters on the opening page of the book, for an extra personal touch.
