A perfect picture book for families and footy fans of all colours.

There are a bazillion reasons to love footy! These are just my biggest ones…

There's the big tackles and amazing marks. There's wearing the scarf and singing the song. But whether your team wins or loses, from the opening bounce to the final siren, the very best thing about footy is that we do it together.

Reviews

Why I Love Footy (is) a celebration of the great Australian (or Melbourne) winter obsession. It celebrates fun and togetherness… The illustrator and author have also used visual references to this book in the new one from this pair, Why I Love Summer. See if you can spot them!
