This friendly, fun biography of Billie Jean King focuses on the traits that made her one of our heroes great--the traits that kids can aspire to in order to live heroically themselves. The book tells the story of one of America's icons in a lively, conversational way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers and that always includes the hero's childhood influences. At the back is an excellent timeline and photos. Billie Jean King, the world champion tennis player, fought successfully for women's rights.
