Van Dijk Rules


Simon Mugford and Dan Green


Records, stats and little-known facts keep the fun factor high.

If Van Dijk is your favourite football superstar, then this is the book for you! Discover how he went from playing football in cages and in the streets in the Netherlands to being named the UEFA Men's Player of the Year in 2019. Learn how Van Dijk came to captain the Netherlands national team and become one of the strongest defenders in the world, currently playing for Liverpool.

Football Superstars: Van Dijk Rules is written in an engaging and accessible style that's ideal for emerging and reluctant readers. The simple narrative text is supplemented with cartoons and visual jokes, and presented with an energetic, graphic look. Sections and chapters make it easy to navigate and fun to dip in and out of. A supporting cast of players, managers, TV pundits - and even the authors themselves - chip in with quotes, jokes and comments to add to the playful and informative fun

After studying the history of everything at Goldsmiths College, Simon worked at the Science Museum making paper aeroplanes and setting fire to hydrogen balloons. Despite being a fully grown man, his favourite subjects include dinosaurs, robots, rockets, loud music and Star Wars. An Ipswich Town fan since they won the FA Cup in 1978 (it's true - look it up) he lives in Kent with his wife, daughter, and a cat with two names. Dan Green has more than 25 years of experience illustrating and designing a wide variety of children's books. He has worked for several leading publishers including Penguin, Ladybird, Hachette, Dorling Kindersley, BBC, Priddy Books, Puffin,Autumn Publishing, Imagine That Publishing and Egmont.
