Product Description

You'll love this because...

Discover the history of ‘the beautiful game’, where hundreds of men used to play in one game all at once!

  • Write a special message on the title page
  • Features original Ladybird artwork
  • Written in Ladybird’s large clear script
  • Available as a hardback and measures 12.6 x 17.8cm

Do you know someone who’s curious about how the beautiful game earned its name? Kick off their education with Ladybird’s Story of Football. Before leather balls and goal posts, kids once used tin cans and stones. Laws were even passed under the reign of Queen Elizabeth forbidding men to play football! But there’s much more to this vintage ladybird book…

Featuring the recipient’s name on the cover and throughout the original ladybird artwork, the book is written in large clear script and easy to read. You can even add a special message on the inside page too. This personalised ladybird book guarantees you’ll have a football fanatic on your hands in no time!

Janny Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 17 November

This is for my eldest grandson. I know he will appreciate his name ALL over this book, No matter how old he is (11). Going on 21.

John Tyrpak Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 28 October

I know it is personalised but still think it is a little over priced for what it is

Webster Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

Looks exactly like any ladybird book --so grandson needed to be shown his name is ALL THE WAY THROUGH IT !!!!Nice I could have personal message inside .. I hope it will be a treasured present .

Smart Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 29 August

When ordered I included the Name I wanted to use 'Richard' as Richard's as the title is 'Richard's book of football 'but each page include this apostrophe . You can't preview each page when you order it so I didn't know this is what would be included on each page. Be careful when indicating the name you want to use. Apart from that the book is great for football fanatics and has interesting history about the game. I haven't yet given to Richard as it's not his birthday till next week so I hope he doesn't notice the s in his name!

shawbury Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

I wanted a personalised book for an 8yr old, so didn't want anything too childish which is all I could find until I came across this website. Its was the perfect gift for a football mad boy and he was delighted with it, it was nice to see him excited over a book just as much as his other christmas presents! Delivery was swift and book well packaged, I would happily recommend 'i just love it' and will be back for future purchases!!

Antony Burdett-Clark (Lightbox Studios) Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 22 May

Good service, very fast turnaround but needs more accurate description.

Very fast turnaround, and easy to use service. The product size and description could have been clearer, as the book was a fair bit smaller than I expected, but otherwise it's great quality and will go down very well indeed.

Mike Harmson Trustpilot product review 1 star rating 18 May

I ordered a bible for my child's first…

I ordered a bible for my child's first Communion and paid extra to have it delivered before or on the 15th May. Her Communion was today, 18th and it never arrived ! Really annoyed about this service. If you want a special gift to arrive on time then choose another seller !
