The Field is now available as a Spanish paperback!
Soccer fan or not, the call of The Field is irresistible.
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 in 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 debut 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.
