I admire Drogba and Roald Dahl, says Frank Lampard
London: Frank Lampard , who is writing a series of books, called Frankie`s Magic Football, for children aged five and over, has revealed that Roald Dahl was a huge inspiration to him as he rediscovered the books he loved as a kid.
Lampard told the Sun that he loved reading Dahl when he was young but had forgotten a lot about the books.
The 34-year-old footballer asserted that Comic David Walliams -a hugely successful children`s author- also provided him a source of encouragement.
Lampard said that his two daughters, Luna, seven, and Isla, five, also love Walliams` books.
"It was really helpful to get an idea of boundaries and limits with the cheeky side and vocabulary," he said.
Frank`s books cover moral issues such as fair play and cheating.
