Dino, an imprint of Bonnier Books UK, has expanded its Football Heroes series with four new titles - Kirby, Marta, Morgan and Smith – ahead of the Fifa Women’s World Cup
"Evoking all the excitement and passion of the pitch, the books are written in a narrative style that brings each player’s unique journey to life - from their first footballing experiences as children to their greatest moments playing for club and country," said Bonnier. "As well as their stories, each book features fantastic additional content including player profiles, statistics and timelines."
Executive director at Bonnier Books UK Helen Wicks said: “In a year that sees women’s football finally stepping out of the shadows cast by the FA’s 50-year ban back in 1921, Dino is delighted to be publishing the stories of three inspirational sportswomen. Every woman that has walked onto the pitch in the past century has done so against a backdrop of hostility. We celebrate their determination, skill and strength and hope that these powerful books go some small way to encouraging new generations to engage in the game whether playing, watching or reading about it.”
The new titles were published on 20th May at £5.99 each and follow the release of the series’ first audio editions: Kane, Messi and Ronaldo, narrated by Joe Jameson.
