Billie Jean King

Author: Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara

Illustrated by: Miranda Sofroniou

Meet Billie Jean King, the tennis star who has dedicated her life to breaking barriers both on and off the tennis court.

Billie Jean began playing tennis at the age of 11. After one of her first tennis lessons, she told her mother, "I'm going to be No. 1 in the world," a title she would come to hold five times between 1966 and 1972. Twenty years later, she is still today considered one of the most successful women in sports history. This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the amazing sportswoman's life.
