Goal!

author: Mina Javaherbin
illustrator: A. G. Ford

In a dusty township in South Africa, Ajani and his friends have earned a brand-new, federation-size soccer ball.
They kick. They dribble. They run. They score. These clever boys are football champions! But when a crew of bullies tries to steal their ball, will Ajani and his friends be able to beat them at their own game?

A lyrical, strikingly illustrated story celebrates the unifying power of soccer.
