What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

A stirring picture book biography of Venus and Serena Williams that celebrates their achievements…and their sisterhood. This is the story of two sisters… who took the tennis world by storm, who achieved everything possible in the sport…and then some, and who stood by one another through thick and thin. Featuring illustrations by Ebony Glenn, Jay Leslie’s Game, Set, Sisters! The Story of Venus and Serena Williams tells the inspirational story of two of the most beloved athletes in history. It takes us from their beginnings on a crumbling Compton tennis court to their shining achievements on the most prestigious stages and shows us that despite being served the most challenging hardships in life–illness, family, loss, racism–Venus and Serena always continued to swing back stronger.
