Little People Big Dreams : Pelé
In this mini biography we discover the life of Pelé, Brazil's all time King of Football. With a sock full of rags for a ball, Pelé honed his skills in a poor neighbourhood in Brazil. He believed that, one day, he would lead his country to World Cup victory - and he was right! With Pelé and his super skills on the team, Brazil lifted the trophy three times.
Today, Pelé is widely regarded as the greatest footballer who ever lived - and a hero off the pitch, too, using his voice to help the people who need it most. This inspiring book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of Pelé's life.
