Synopsis

Alex Morgan by Illugi Jokulsson

World Soccer Legends series for young readers Everything you need to know about most exciting clubs and the best players on the planet. Alex Morgan Gold medal winner and Athlete of the Year One of the most exciting players on the scene, Alex Morgan has rocketed into the top echelon of world soccer stars. At just 22, she was the number one pick in the Women's Professional Soccer draft and the youngest player on the U.S. team in the FIFA World Cup. Now a member of the Portland Thorns, Morgan has already amassed a string of accomplishments. In 2012 she won an Olympic gold medal and was also named the U.S. Soccer Female Athlete of the Year. The book includes details of her historic early career, vivid photos of her electric force on the field, impressive stats, and fun facts and little-known information about this popular player on the rise.

Reviews

These books address a largely unfilled niche: short, highly readable biographies of contemporary soccer stars. The texts are printed over and around voluminous, richly printed photographs and include many pages of scoring statistics and league standings. -- School Library Journal These books in the World Soccer Legends [series], newly translated into English, will appeal mainly to young hardcore soccer fans. Such readers cannot get enough of the action photographs, copious statistics, and player profiles that fill the books. -- Booklist These books are a terrific soccer resource for kids! They combine the best of world soccer along with history, geography and a glimpse at what it's like growing up as a young soccer player in another country. Soccer is truly a global language and these books help American kids speak it fluently. What a great opportunity for young soccer players to learn about their heroes and the legendary clubs of the world. These books are engaging and fun! --Lynn Berling-Manuel, American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO)

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
