But, today he cant find anyone to play football with. At his grandparents suggestion he settles for a cosy afternoon with them reading his favourite traditional nursery rhymes. George then dozes off and finds himself inside the pages of these traditional tales. He meets the contemporary version of characters such as Little Miss Muffet, Old Mother Hubbard, and Little Jack Horner, to name but a few. George rounds them up and organises a great game of five-a-side football. Goals are scored, the whistle blows... and George wakes up to find it was all a dreamOR, was it? That mouse running up the grandfather clock is for realThe objective of this fun, colourful book is to encourage childrens imagination to run wild, to fantasize about something theyre passionate about and to realise that dreamscan be very entertaining. Here, football is key...and most children love playing or watching football. From two players up, from a backyard to a football pitch, its possible for children generally to engage in an exhilirating game of football whatever their language, their culture, their colour, their creed, or even their level of skill. In football there are no barriers.Georges Best Football Game introduces simple dialogue to a young audience and uses repetitive phrases (e.g. football another day perhaps?) and repetitive images (e.g. a football, and a red nursery rhyme book) throughout. Georges football players are vibrant and exciting to look at, while the story and pictures are as charming as he is
