A groundbreaking new series from two bestselling writers that teaches you about the world through football.

The first book is packed with awesome true stories, real science and fascinating facts and will make you laugh loads.

When do footballers poo?

Can you play football on Mars?

What is a magic sponge?

You will find the answers to these questions and more in chapters on subjects such as history, geography, biology and maths. Illustrated throughout with hilarious cartoons and filled with laugh-out-loud gags this is the perfect book for any boy or girl who loves football.

Your coaches at Football School, Alex Bellos and Ben Lyttleton, are journalists, broadcasters and award-winning science and sports writers. Their knowledge, enthusiasm and engaging writing make them the perfect team to teach you how to score with your head.

A journalist, author and mathematician, Alex Bellos was, for a time, the Guardian’s South American correspondent during which time he wrote Futebol: The Brazilian Way of Life. Since returning to the UK he’s concentrated on writing about maths and science, writing the bestselling popular science books Alex’s Adventures in NumberlandAlex Through the Looking Glass, Can You Solve My Problems and the forthcoming Puzzle Ninja. He is also the author of a football series for children, Football School Season.

Ben Lyttleton is a sport's journalist, broadcaster and author of Twelve Yards and Edge: What Business Can Learn from Football. He is also a consultant for Soccernomics

'The perfect book to get football-mad kids enthusiastic about reading' * Paul Brackwell, Head of Education, Aston Villa Football Club *
"Am very jealous of Alex Bellos and Ben Lyttleton - I fear they have a bestseller here. Section on poo is especially good." * Simon Kuper, Financial Times *
"This book is superb way for children to learn about such diverse subjects as geography, maths and psychology. I have really enjoyed reading it with my seven-year-old son - and he's not the only one who has been learning a lot" * Marcus Christenson, Football Editor, The Guardian *
"Have you got football-loving kids? This got a massive thumbs-up from mine. Recommended reading." * Amy Lawrence, The Observer *
