Backyard Footy

By Carl Merrison and illustrated by Samantha Campbell

The first book in a joyful black&write!-winning picture book series that follows a cast of footy-crazy kids as they hop through the backyards of their neighbourhood in the Kimberley, collecting equipment and friends to play with as they go.

Jy is playing football alone in his small backyard in the Kimberley, but when he accidentally kicks the ball over the fence, a footy adventure begins! Footy by yourself is fun but playing with mates is better.

The first title in a joyful black&write! Fellowship-winning series, where the fun only grows with family and friends!
