"Brazil eats, sleeps and drinks football. It lives football!" - Pele
Halifax Public Libraries' collection is so diverse that we have books to represent each soccer team in the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil! So we decided to have our own Literary World Cup matchups with titles from our Fiction, Non-Fiction, and Multilingual collections.
The first match Brazil vs Croatia is represented by:
El alquimista : una fàbula para seguir tus sueños by Paulo Coelho

Cameroon vs Mexico:
The King and the Tortoise by Tololwa M. Mollel
Arrebatos carnales by Francisco Martín Moreno
Spain vs Netherlands :

De Cock en de treurende kater by A.C. Baantjer
Chile vs Australia :
