Sports Are Fantastic Fun

By Ole Könnecke
Illustrated by Ole Könnecke

A witty picture dictionary of the world’s most popular sports

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.

  • Full of detail and stories within every picture
  • Informative and fun introduction to a genuine worldwide collection of sports: includes cricket, rugby, basketball, surfing, athletics, ballet, gymnastics, golf ... and arm wrestling
  • Dry humour with lots for the adults to enjoy
