We want you and your family to create a character that could be part of a football-themed story, using our Create a character challenge resources.
For this challenge we teamed up with the National Literacy Trust and author Dan Freedman. Dan is the author and creator of Jamie Johnson, a football-obsessed boy hoping to become a world-class player. You might have read some of his books, or even seen the Jamie Johnson stories on CBBC!
You can watch Dan reading from Kick Off, the first Jamie Johnson book in the series, and get a free copy of it on the National Literacy Trust Family Zone. You can also watch TV presenter Ben Shires interview Dan, about what it takes to become a football writer - watch the interview.
