Product Details


“Billie Jean King’s positive energy and dedication to her endless battle for the simple idea of equality are captured in this profile of the tennis legend. A must-read for young equal rights warriors. Your advantage.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Considering King’s contributions to the struggle toward equal funding, scholarships, pay, and respect for women in sports, this accessible picture book offers a welcome introduction to this legendary tennis star and advocate for women’s rights.” —Booklist

“Rockliff reveals the pervasive dimensions of the prejudices King faced, heightening her continued perseverance and eventual victories. And the firmly defined lines of Baddeley’s illustrations aptly evoke King’s steely determination through frustrations and joys.” —Publishers Weekly

“Rockliff’s text deftly tells King’s story; Baddeley provides beautiful illustrations. A good addition for collections needing information on the evolution of women’s treatment in professional sports through the life of one of its greatest icons.” —School Library Journal
