As well as being a top Premier League footballer, Frank Lampard is also a children's author.

The Manchester City star is backing a new campaign, Premier League Reading Stars, to encourage more kids to read books.

Adam Lallana, Joey Barton and Boaz Myhill are some of the other top footy stars involved.

We spoke to Frank on World Book Day to find out why he thinks more children should get involved in reading - and why it's so important to love books.
