  • Description

    Cycling, ice hockey, athletics, tennis, climbing … There are so many sports, and they’re all fantastic fun!

    Football is fantastic fun, except when your team keeps missing goals: that can make you cry.  Horse-riding is also fantastic—so long as the horse goes where the rider wants. Running, cycling and swimming require fantastic agility and endurance. Billiards is quieter, but still fantastic fun!

    Sports lovers small and big will find the one they love best—and some surprises—in this witty picture book, with funny animal characters trying out all the sports and a laconic commentary.
