The Match

Publisher: Bloomsbury

A man and his dog watch their favourite football team suffer defeat after defeat; a shame, as the match seems like the only respite from the man's repetitive life of going to work and coming home.

Yet one day, the dog isn't at home to watch the match, and, even more surprisingly, there's a new substitute running onto the pitch as the man watches from the couch...

Told in completely minimal word count with a cleverly arranged illustration in three-tone illustration style, this is a quirky story that many football (and dog) fans will love.
