2018. World Cup year. After their wreckage in Rio, the England team have qualified for the tournament in Russia. More importantly, the 6th edition of Wicked World Cup will be in the shops. The new cover has just been released. Here's a sneak preview.

Hi Michael,
My son recently bought the Wicked World Cup book and is seems like a fun read. I am concerned about the references to 'Northern Ireland in the section 'World Cup Beginnings' Northern Ireland was created in 1921 after the Irish War of Independence. Before then the soccer team was simply called Ireland. Also there is reference to 'the four countries of Great Britain' although there are only three. United Kingdom refers to the four.
All the best with this and future books.

Hello Padraig
Thanks for pointing these out. I'll make sure they're taken into account for the 2022 edition!
I hope your son enjoys the book.
Best wishes - Michael Coleman

Dear Michael,

Do you have a Twitter/ Facebook page?
My daughter has dressed as Shelly out of Ridiculous for World Book Day for the last 3 years. I would love you to see how happy she is from reading your book.

Hello Karen

I don't subscribe to any of the social media platforms, I'm afraid. I always reply to emails and blog posts though! Try me on [email protected]
Please tell your daughter how pleased and flattered I am that she dresses as Shelley from Ridiculous! If you and she would be happy to send a picture I'd love to see it.

Best wishes - Michael Coleman
