Be a champion like Marcus Rashford with this inspiring book

Get your hands on You are a Champion by Marcus Rashford and Carl Anka and learn some motivational tips from one of the England football team's top players...

We're HUGE fans of Marcus Rashford - and we couldn't be more excited to have five copies of his new book, You are a Champion, to give away to lucky winners!

Co-written with journalist Carl Anka, You are a Champion is all about Marcus' meteoric rise to fame, from being a football-obsessed kid from Wythenshaw to one of the most inspiring players in the world - as well as a committed activist, fighting the growing problem of child food poverty in the UK and encouraging children to get into reading with his Book Club.

But it's not all about Marcus - he wants you to take the lessons he's learned and use them to be the best version of yourself you can be. Marcus used hard work, natural talent, and good friends to get to where he is today, and through words of wisdom and gratitude (and some fun activities!) this book sets out to show children that when you dream big, anything is possible. It also sensitively handles topics like anxiety and self-confidence, teaching readers how to focus on their strengths and be kind to themselves and each other.
