Little People, Big Dreams: Pelé - Isabel Sanchez Vegara


This little biography tells the inspirational story of Brazilian football icon, Pelé. With a sock full of rags for a ball, Pelé honed his skills in a poor neighbourhood in Brazil. He believed he would lead his country to World Cup victory… And he was right, with Pelé on the team, Brazil lifted the trophy three times. Today, he is widely regarded as the greatest footballer who ever lived – and a hero off the pitch as he uses his voice to help the people who need it most. 

The Little People, Big Dreams books series portrays the inspiring lives of artists, designers, activists and scientists in a super-accessible way with sweet illustrations and by focusing on when they started out as children with a dream.
