JUVENILE NONFICTION / History / Central & South America

With a sock full of rags for a ball, Pele honed his skills in a poor neighborhood in Brazil. He believed that, one day, he would lead his country to World Cup victory--and he was right! With Pele and his super skills on the team, Brazil lifted the trophy three times. Today, he is widely regarded as the greatest soccer player 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 The King's life.
