"Vini! Come! The field calls!" cries a girl as she and her younger brother rouse their community - family, friends, and the local fruit vendor - for a pick-up soccer (futbol) game. Boys and girls, young and old, players and spectators come running - bringing balls, shoes, goals, and a love of the sport. "Friends versus friends" teams are formed, the field is cleared of cows, and the game begins! But will a tropical rainstorm threaten their plans? The world's most popular and inclusive sport has found its spirited and authentic voice in Baptiste Paul's debut picture book - highlighting the joys of the game along with its universal themes: teamwork, leadership, diversity, and acceptance. Creole words (as spoken as Saint Lucia, the author's birthplace island in the Caribbean) add spice to the story and are a strong reminder of the sport's world fame. Bright and brilliant illustrations by debute children's book illustrator Jacqueline Alcántara - winner of the We Need Diverse Books Illustration Mentorship award - capture the grit and glory of the game and the beauty of the island setting that inspired this particular field. -- From dust jacket.
Children form teams, build a pitch, and play a joyous game of soccer, in a book with English and Creole (as spoken in Saint Lucia) vocabulary words.
