LANGUAGE:English

" Well written biography of Pelé that I think will be well received by older soccer loving students. I particularly liked the way in which Brazilian history and developments in soccer rules were woven into the story and appreciated the fact that Brazilian Portuguese was used on a number of times appropriately and in context as it helped the realism of the story.Review based on NetGalley copy. " said.

" Note: I received a digital ARC of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. " said.

"A quite detailed biography in graphic novel format which provides the reader not just with an overview of the soccer legend's life but also gives insights into Brazil's modern history, its socio-economic and political struggles and challenges, all the way through to 2014. It is of course a special treat for all soccer fans. Dormant readers will especially appreciate the sparse, yet informative text. I am not an expert on Pelé but this biography feels and reads like a very honest account, not leaving out the legend's weaknesses -for example with regards to women. Due to some more mature content, I find the book most suitable for older readers (middle grades up)." said.

" Pelé: The King of Soccer by Eddy Simon and Vincent Brascaglia is the name I have heard for years because soccer is by far the most popular sport at my school, but I hadn't know much about him until this graphic novel, and I loved learning about the man that many of my students call a hero.
