"You don't have to be a soccer fan to enjoy this book! My son and I had no idea who Leo Messi was until we read this book together, so we discovered something new which is what all good books(...)"

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Tanya believes in the power of literature as a means to growth, education, and the cultivation of curious, compassionate, happy children. Raised by parents who grew up in the USSR, Tanya received a strict "old school" Russian education, emphasizing discipline, persistence and restraint. As you will discover in Tanya’s semi-autobiographical books, passing down "old school" values to her modern day soccer-fanatic son is a continuous balance of patience, love, boundaries, and surrender, which brings to mind another Russian principle: “Education never ends.”

ABOUT
THE
ILLUSTRATOR

Elettra Cudignotto loved painting since she was a little girl. As far as she remembers she was scribbling little drawings on napkins, books and bills. Lots of practice refined her vivid and unique style. Her illustrations are characterized by wild colors and powerful irregular hand drawn lines. You will find one in each chapter in this picture book.
