" great for kids who love soccer " said.

" I enjoyed learning about Pele's younger life and the mystery behind the name. " said.

" learned a lot about pele---interesting. " said.

" this book was amazing not just because it's Pele (the greatest man ever) but because it shows you how he used to be in poverty and how he has grown from that and that he became the greatest soccer player ever! " said.

" Shares Edson do Nascimento's soccer filled childhood, from age 8 to about 12. Talks about how he took on the nickname Pele, was consumed with soccer, and how his first soccer team played without shoes. Author's note fills in the remaining details. Oil paint illustrations are wonderfully done, giving readers a glimpse into what Pele's hometown may have looked like. " said.

" This book is about a young boy,that eat,sleep and practice kicking a soccer ball all day long. He and his friends finally forms a team but they couldn't afford to buy any shoes. It took three of the teammate's dad to take over the team and managed them. He was able to get them some hand me down shoes. When they did get to play in the soccer tournament they won and Pele was the crowd favorite. He grew up to be a famous soccer player. " said.

"Pelé is one of the best sportsperson ever lived...on par with Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Babe Ruth, et al. His story of rags to riches is not uncommon among Brazilian football players, but there is a lot to admire in his sole lifelong dedication to football.

The only thing this book is lacking is the fact that his father (who was a footballer himself) played a major part in showing Pelé the right techniques. Pelé was never a lazy player, but he lacked technique, and it was his father who showed him how to play properly.

Overall, this is a must read for people of all ages. It takes around 20 minutes to finish (as it is more of an illustrated children's book), but it is more entertaining to read about Pelé's life from this book than from any Wikipedia page about him.
