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

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 little 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.
