Ready, Steady, Mo! Running legend Mo Farah launches children’s book

Hodder Children’s Books has launched a picture book inspired by Olympic champion Mo Farah.

Ready, Steady, Mo! was created with Farah’s input but written by Kes Gray and illustrated by Marta Kissi. The book will be in funny, rhyming text with vibrant illustrations, encouraging children to exercise and families to read together. 

Farah said: 'I’m very excited to be working with Hodder Children’s Books to create something really special – a book that will hopefully capture the imagination of kids across the world and build their sense of adventure and fun. Many struggle with reading so it’s important we make books as exciting as possible, and Hodder has published some amazing ones over the years.'

Ready, Steady, Mo! will available in the shops this July (RRP £6.99).
