‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Poka & Mia Football
by Kitty Crowther
Age Range: Under_5
When Mia sees the boys playing football she tells Poka that she wants to play football too. But at her first training session she discovers she is the only girl on the team!
This is the ‘enchanting world’, as illustrator Axel Scheffler says on the back of the book, of renowned Belgian writer and illustrator Kitty Crowther, who has created over 30 books for children and has won many international awards and prizes including the most coveted Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award in 2010.
‘Poka and Mia’ is a series of books by Crowther that have been translated into English for the first time by Ann Drummond for Tate Publishing. The delicate, distinctive illustrations in pencil, crayons and ink are bound to be extremely popular with a new audience. Children are sure to adore these quirky, endearing insects and adults will be able to identify with Poka and the situations he finds himself in too.
