Get That Ball

Publisher: Andersen Press

Review

One day, Tom and his Granny are playing football when Granny kicks the ball way over the bar and cries out, 'Get that ball!'

However, it's easier said than done when the ball boings down the drain, over the fountain, along the high street, up into the mountains and over the cliff! Worse, that's not the end of the ball's adventures, as it gets snatched out of the sea by a giant bird...

Excellent fun for little ones and all footie fans, it's great to see a football book featuring a football-mad Granny. Fans of Korky Paul will recognise his illustration style from Winnie the Witch, and Get That Ball is just as full of amazing detail that you'll be looking at for ages.
