Frank Lampard's six best books

Frank Lampard is an English professional soccer player who now plays as a midfielder for New York City FC. He is also the author of over a dozen children’s books in the Frankie’s Magic Football series. One of his six best books, as shared at the Daily Express:
OF MICE AND MEN by John Steinbeck

This book got me interested in English lessons at school. It captured my imagination in terms of the descriptions of the Depression era and the two main characters, Lennie and George. They’ve got a dream and go off to work but it all falls apart. It’s fantastic and timeless.
Read about the other books on the list.

Of Mice and Men is among Susan Shillinglaw's thirteen best John Steinbeck books, Becky Ferreira's six most memorable bullies in literature, Paul Wilson's ten top books about disability, and Sarah Salway's top ten books about unlikely friendships.
