From the publisher:
Filled with quizzes, stats and little known facts, plus illustrated and told with all the fun of a Tom Gates novel, the Football Superstars series is perfect for young readers five and up. Is Kylian Mbappe your ultimate football hero? His quick feet and shooting skills have made him one of the world's top forwards and the youngest ever player to score 16 goals in the Champions League. Mbappe started playing at the age of six and his first coach was his dad.
Find out how he went from playing on the pitch he created in his living room to becoming the second teenager in history to score in a World Cup final. Football Superstars is a series aimed at building a love of reading from a young age, with fun cartoons, inspirational stories, a simple narrative style and a cast of characters chipping in with quotes, jokes and comments.

Dan Green draws and writes books about stuff like trucks, space, people's jobs, Doctor Who and Star Wars.
