" its a book...about pele...nuff said " said.

" Rudy Gutiérrez's rich illustrations supports un gran libro sobre Pelé! There's a little Portuguese in this book O Reí! " 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.

" 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.

" Having a two year old has made me have a deep appreciation for bilingual children's books that are interesting for adults. Monica Brown might be my favorite newfound author. Whether it be Marisol McDonald, Gabito, Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, or Pelé, I'm always grateful to read these to my little man. AND, Rafael López, Sara Palacios, Rudy Gutiérrez, and Raúl Colón have some bomb 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.
