The fifth book in the Big Book of Who series from Sports Illustrated Kids profiles extraordinary athletes who shaped the narratives of their sports. The best women athletes — past and present — including Billie Jean King, Serena Williams, Nadia Comaneci, Simone Biles, and dozens more are grouped into these categories: Superstars who reinvented what it means to be a sports celebrity, Wonder Women who transcend sports and created seismic shifts in our culture, Trail Blazers who broke barriers and paved the way for others to follow, Record Breakers who set new standards for excellence, and the Champions who showed heart and gumption as winners.
All of their stories bring excellence in women's sports to readers hungry for empowering stories for kids — girls and boys alike.
"Each entry focuses on career highlights and comes with a color action photo. Many also feature a quote or 'Wow Factor' inset trumpeting some signal feat.... younger readers looking for athletic role models will find plenty to choose from." — Kirkus Reviews
