" I like the simple telling of the soccer star and this story offers a great introduction bio. The book is full of great information without being overwhelming. Vibrant illustrations stylistic of Brown's book remind me of street graffiti or spray paint and give motion and movement to the pages. " said.

" First class illustrations by Rudy Gutierrez, who created the artwork for Santana's Shaman CD, enliven this simple story of Pele's childhood and introduction to professional soccer. Reads like a picture book with easy to floow Spanish translation. " said.

" This is a fun book that shares Pele's life story in a simple way with fun colors. It would be fantastic paired with The Sock Thief because it includes the idea of making homemade soccer balls. It would also be great with Soccer Star by Javaherbin. " said.

" Brown tells the story of Pelé using two styles: sports announcer and narrative storyteller. The combination brings a here-and-now soccer stadium feel to the story of one of the world’s greatest sportsmen while also lending it a dignified feel. " said.

" Covers the life of Pele from childhood through professional soccer career. Text is shown in English, then in Spanish (as is author's note). Wild, brightly colored illustrations have great detail, pages are fun to look at. " said.

" I will most definitely use this book, both for English language learners and for the general classroom. It is a great demonstration of how hard work overcomes adversity that is based on the true story of Brazilian soccer legend Edson Arantes do Nascimento. It has true facts about the player at the end of the story and also beautiful illustrations. " said.

"Copyright 2009. This short story is a great recap of Pele's life. The illustrations are amazing, with great detail while being abstract at the same time. Each pages has bright colors and intricate designs of people and Brazil. I think this books would be great for children of all ages, especially soccer players. I think some great discussions could come from this book about Pele; his family, his early years, breaking records and much more. What is great as well, is the book is in English and Spanish on the same page. " said.

"Pele: King of Soccer was an Americas Award 2010 Commended Title. This book is for ages 4-8 and is a quick read about the life of Soccer star Pele. This book is a great introduction about Pele to young children. The book is told is both English and Spanish. The illustrations are very colorful and somewhat wild. Key points are touched on such as how Pele grew up and some of his major life achievements such as getting Brazil a World Cup win and scoring 1000 goals. This is a wonderful biographical book for younger students. I plan to read it to my 4 year old who just started playing team soccer. " said.
