Clive Gifford is an award-winning author of more than fifty books on the subjects of sports and soccer. His previous titles for Kingfisher include The Kingfisher Soccer Encyclopedia, Soccer Skills, Summer Olympics, and Soccer.
"The book is well-organized and comprehensive, but not overwhelming for young readers. . . . Colored pictures and maps with major cities and bodies of water are balanced with the text. . . . Teachers would find this a good resource to use alongside a textbook." --Library Media Connection
