The Football's Revolt
George Him and Jan Lewitt
Footballs, as well as footballers, have feelings too, as proven by this reproduction of the charming 1940's children's book by design partnership Lewitt-Him. The excited citizens of Kickford and Goalbridge turn out for their annual football match only to have it cut short. After a particularly violent kick, the ball decides it has had enough and remains in the air, in spite of the townspeople's heroic attempts to get it to come down. It is left to the children of the town to come up with a plan to save the match.
