Poka and Mia: Football (Hardback)
"I've admired the enchanted world of Kitty Crowther for a long time and I'm happy that English speaking children can now get to know it as well." - Alex Scheffler, illustrator of The Gruffalo
Is football a boy's game or a girl's game? Mia doesn't care, she just wants to play. But when the boys on her team all laugh at her she doesn't feel so sure. Mia isn't going to give up though....
This delightful series of picture books expresses the humour, frustrations and profundities of the parent/child relationship through two endearing insects, Poka and Mia. Despite their multiple limbs and cellophane wings, children and adults alike will immediately identify with Poka and Mia and the situations they find themselves in, making these books ideal for children learning to read. Illustrated in the inimitable style of Kitty Crowther, which is at once both dark and sweet, these charming creatures will ingratiate themselves to even the most hardened cynic.
