About this item

We've all got a dream, right? Growing up in Rosario, Argentina was tough for a kid - especially a little one like Lionel Messi. But Lionel didn't want to be little - he wanted to be a LEGEND! This is the story of Lionel's discovery, his first football matches for Newell's Old Boys and then the huge decision that would change his life FOREVER...

It takes blood, sweat and tears to get to the top of any sport, and these short, inspirational biographies show just how tough it can be. Each is written by expert author Roy Apps for kids with a reading age of 7 (but could also be enjoyed by pre-teens) and illustrated with black-and-white artwork. The stories focus on top athletes and sport personalities, with each dramatic story bringing to life the skill, determination and luck needed to break through into top level competition.
