I'm thinking about sports books for kids - something like a guide to tennis fronted by Andy Murray or cycling with Chris Hoy (I know he did fiction) and so on.

There has been so much high profile celebrity sports successes but it'd be good to see books that kids could be inspired by.

What do you think, is this something you'd buy or nah?

Do you mean sort of a biography of the star?

or

a book showing techniques in some way?

or

something else?

I'd have thought most dc would need to be shown - for example - how to grip a racquet in situ, not a diagram of it in a book.

Probably just a general guide to the sport - tips, rules, etiquette maybe a bit of history/jokes to make it interesting!
