Why I Love Footy

Author(s): Michael Wagner

Picture Books

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.

'Why I Love Footy'  is the AFL picture book we've been waiting generations for!


It's completely relatable, it's warm and tense and humorous. Michael Wagner has captured the footy experience perfectly, and Tom Jellett's illustrations are the pitch perfect match. Satisfyingly detailed, they are sure to standup to this book's fair share of re-reading.
