When he’s not marshalling Chelsea’s midfield, that nice Frank Lampard writes books about a young footballer called… Frankie! Childrens’ illustrator and animator Luella Wright was signed for the team from a long list of hopefuls and has produced charming work to bring the story to life.
In April, the Little, Brown Book Group announced the release of five more ‘Frankie’s Magic Football’ books, each taking place in a different country around the globe. Set in Brazil, ‘Frankie and the World Cup Calamity’ was published to coincide with the World Cup and in August ‘Frankie and the Dragon Curse’ was released.
Luella has just finished illustrating two more Frankie books – look out for them in bookshops near you soon!
