“Javaherbin's free-flowing narrative in Neymar Jr.'s imagined first-person voice, coupled with Hoppe's evocative, movement-filled illustrations, brings life to this athlete's biography. A real page-turner, this book couldn't have been released at a better time, a few months before the 2018 World Cup. A gem” –School Library Journal
