What does the world's greatest soccer player love about the game? The same things as we do! Speed, team work, dribbling, passing, taking your best shot--and making a G-O-A-A-A-L!
Pelé, three-time World Cup champion, has been the subject of several unauthorized biographies. But here, in his own words, he celebrates the kick and thrill of his favorite sport. Artist Frank Morrison scores an amazing assist with two dynamic visual stories: Pelé’s inspiring rise to fame, and a young athlete’s efforts to follow in his hero’s speedy footsteps. Together, words and pictures deliver all the fun and excitement of a closely-matched game. World Cup fans, come play!
