An inspiring, positive and practical guide for kids from Marcus Rashford MBE, footballer and child food poverty campaigner. It’s hard to know what is possible until you start. You have to be able to dream big and be prepared to work towards your dreams. I’ve achieved a lot so far, but it didn’t come in one go; big things rarely happen overnight, and good things rarely happen as if by magic . . . Marcus Rashford is famous worldwide for his skills both on and off the pitch – but before he was a Manchester United and England footballer, and long before he started his inspiring campaign to end child food poverty, he was just an average kid from Wythenshawe, South Manchester. Now, Marcus Rashford MBE wants to show YOU how to achieve your dreams, in this positive and inspiring guide for life. Written with journalist Carl Anka, this empowering guide is packed full of stories from Marcus’s own life. Perfect for readers who need to hear that they already are champions – they just might not know it yet.
