Billie JEan! How tennis star billie jean king changed women’s sports.
Coming August 2019 from Putnam (Penguin Random House)
A fun and inspiring picture book biography of tennis legend and women's rights activist Billie Jean King . Anything Billie Jean did, she did it ALL THE WAY. When she ran, she ran fast. When she played, she played hard. As a top women's tennis player, Billie Jean fought for fairness in women's sports, and when she faced off against Bobby Riggs in the Battle of the Sexes, the most famous tennis match in history, she showed the world that men and women--and boys and girls--are equal on and off the court.
