Lionel Messi: Epic Athletes

By: Dan Wetzel

Illustrator: Jay Reed

Lionel Messi has taken the soccer world by storm. He scored the most goals in a season. He's racked up championships. There was even a statue built in his honor. Despite the accolades, he's still hungry for more goals, more championships, more opportunities to shine on the soccer pitch. Messi's drive to succeed has motivated him ever since he first stepped on his local, worn-down field as a kid.

Yet his success didn't come without bumps in the road. Diagnosed with a career-threatening condition at ten, Messi refused to give up on his dream, and went on to amass one of the greatest careers in sports history. Filled with sports action and bold illustrations, this inspiring biography details the rise of a living soccer legend.

Black-and-white illustrations.
