item code: 15439

This charming children's book was written by the winner of the highly coveted Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award 2010. It is the one of the first books to be translated into English by the award-winning Belgian author/illustrator. The endearing characters in everyday situations make these books perfect for early readers and the distinct illustration style is underpinned by a humanist sensibility.

Mia wants to play football. At her first training session she discovers she is the only girl on the team. The boys joke, “Just because you’re wearing Gibs boots doesn’t mean you can play footie.” Mia wants the ground to open up and swallow her.

Kitty Crowther is the winner of many international awards and prizes including the most coveted Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award 2010 whose previous winners have included Maurice Sendak and Philip Pullman. Born in Brussels to a Swedish mother and British father, Kitty now lives in Paris and is the illustrator and author of over 30 books for children.
