Picture book biography. This book is interesting because it focuses on Serena. Her sister Venus (and other family members) is discussed, but the focus is solely on Serena. From sneaking into her first tennis tournament, to winning a major competition before her older sister, this is her story. Beautiful bright illustrations are similar to paper collage but are done in Illustrator.

The story of Serena Williams’ journey to tennis stardom, focusing on family first.

An extensive bibliography and author’s note is included.

Between her father's coaching, her sisters' encouragement, and the tennis partner she found in Venus, Serena attributes her success on the court to her family. A moving, inspiring, love-filled bio.
