The No.1 football series - over 1 million copies sold.

The greatest football player of the 20th century. Considered as one of the greatest players of all time, Brazilian striker Pelé holds the Guinness World record for most goals scored, with a total of 1,283 goals in 1,363 matches.

Raised in poverty in the state of Sao Paulo, Pelé was taught to play football by his father - as they could not afford a ball they played with a grapefruit or a sock stuffed with newspaper. Pelé tells the incredible story of how Edson Arantes do Nascimento, nicknamed Pelé, grew up to become the greatest player of the 20th century.

Ultimate Football Heroes is a series of biographies telling the life stories of the biggest and best footballers in the world and their incredible journeys from childhood fan to superstar professional player. Written in fast-paced, action-packed style these books are perfect for all the family to collect and share.
