Illustrated by AG Ford

Celebrate soccer—and the World Cup! “Uplifting and inspiring, this beautifully written and illustrated book reminds us of the joys and saving grace of friendship and sport.” — Archbishop Desmond Tutu

In a dusty township in South Africa, Ajani and his friends have earned a brand-new, federationsize soccer ball. They kick. They dribble. They run. They score. These clever boys are football champions! But when a crew of bullies tries to steal their ball, will Ajani and his friends be able to beat them at their own game?

  • Exciting, fun, suspenseful, and poignant in equal measure.
  • Beautifully illustrated by A.G. Ford, illustrator of Jonah Winter's New York Times Bestselling Barack and Michelle by Deborah Hopkinson.
