Inhaltsangabe: A brief biography of Argentinian soccer star Lionel Messi.
From Booklist: This volume in the Superstars of Soccer: Argentina series, part of the publisher’s robust new line of international soccer titles, focuses on FC Barcelona virtuoso Messi. After a vertically arranged time line (interestingly, it begins with the most recent developments on the top), we are introduced to Messi as a child. It’s a story that will have a particular punch for young readers: when he was diagnosed with a growth hormone disorder, his family struggled to pay for his treatments, until Messi received an invitation to play for the Barcelona squad, which included payment of all medical expenses. From there Messi, known for his “humility and meekness,” went on a staggering run of achievement, becoming a team captain and winning the King’s Cup, the Super Cup, and more. And it’s all “an unfinished story,” seeing as how Messi was only 24 years old as of this book’s publication. Fairly heavy on text and stats, the book does allow for the occasional artful phrase (“his injuries did not dampen the brightness of his game”), and the game photos, of course, are exciting. For soccer die-hards, this is a no-brainer. Grades 4-7. --Daniel Kraus
