‘This historical account of a female football revolution teaches children the importance of resilience’ Trailblazer Blog Tour, Day 2

Louise over at Books For Boys has reviewed our newest narrative non-fiction picture book, Trailblazer by Elizabeth Dale, with illustrations by Carolina Coroa;

This delightful picture book follows Lily Parr the inspirational women’s footballer, who
battled prejudice to play the sport she loved. When football is banned, Lily and her teammates don’t give up!

On the inside cover of the book is a fascinating facts montage and subsequently on every page is another fact including how many goals Lily scored and the money that was raised to help in the war effort.

As bold and strong as Lily herself the illustrations make this book very pleasing to read and speech bubbles appeal to reluctant readers. Perfect for football fans this historical account of a female football revolution teaches children the importance of resilience. Finishing with a thought provoking image of modern day women’s footballers shadowed by former players this is an inspirational story.

Thank You!
