"My story is a homage to all football stars who have risen and continue to rise up from poverty" (M. Javaherbin). Set in Brazil, this stunningly illustrated story about a child's ambition to be a great footballer is also a beautifully non-didactic and thoughtful story about poverty, child labour and a challenge to gender stereotypes. We adored it. Age 4-7, Paperback 31pp
