"Girls can't play tennis as well as boys?  What a lot of NONSENSE!"

Lottie is DETERMINED to show that girls can be just as good as sports as boys. She runs and jumps and leaps after the ball - playing tennis makes Lottie feel WONDERFUL. After beating her brothers, she eventually goes on to reach the finals of the most important tennis competition of them all - WIMBLEDON!


Can she continue her winning streak to become the world's first female sports SUPERSTAR? NEVER underestimate what girls can do!

Inspired by the real-life story of extraordinary athlete Lottie Dod, this new story for Barrington Stoke's Little Gems series has beautiful artwork by Ella Okstad.

'A dauntless, inspiring little story' Imogen Russell Williams, The Guardian
