Very well written and illustrated. Your book is a must for young players and parents to learn to love the game. It paints a clear pathway to understanding tennis and should lead to a life time of tennis for many new players to the game. Thank you for allowing me to preview your work. Congratulations, you must be quite proud of the work you have given us.
As Andy Ace says, “Tennis is a lifetime sport” and Patty has done a beautiful job of explaining the game of tennis to players of all ages. By creating fun characters that children can relate to and explaining the game through their experiences, this book will inspire future tennis players. The beautiful and brightly illustrated pictures and “talking bubbles” add fun and character to this book!
