howzatHowzat by Mike LeFroy Illus. by Liz Anelli. Pub. Walker books, 2014.

Cricket is a game like no other and whats more it is a World Wide game as this picture book celebrates.

Starting in England the bouncing cricket ball takes the reader around the World to every continent where the game is played. The written text reflects all the cricket terminology like snick, silly mid on, googly, slashing, howzat and its a six.

Each two page spread by Liz Anelli shows the game being played by boys, girls and adults and reflects the culture and characteristics of the country concerned. Backyard, beach and street cricket are featured plus the organised games. With the flag of each country prominently displayed.

Not just for the cricket enthusiast but definitely a celebration of the great game.
