About the Author

Former NBA Veteran Player Adonal Foyle grew up in the tiny nation of St. Vincent & the Grenadines, where he first picked up a basketball at the age of 15. His quest for a college education which ultimately led him to the USA and into the NBA is an amazing and inspirational story of ambition, hard work and a little bit of luck. The eighth overall NBA draft pick in 1997, Adonal played for a decade with the Golden State Warriors and three years with the Orlando Magic. Adonal graduated magna cum laude from Colgate University and has a Masters in Sports Psychology from John F. Kennedy University. He is extremely active in the community and founded two youth non-profit organizations including Kerosene Lamp Foundation (www.KLFkids.org) which uses basketball to engage and empower at-risk youth to grow into healthy and well-educated leaders in the Caribbean and USA. Adonal has received many honors, including induction into the World Sports Humanitarian Hall of Fame and the CoSIDA Academic All-America Hall of Fame. http://www.AdonalFoyle.com & http://www.TooTallFoyle.com.

Based on a true story, I think it is a great book for children to believe in real life heroes. The story is well illustrated and it is something you will find your children reading over and over. A must buy.

This book is a great read for any kid who likes sports and/or needs a little encouragement. With beautiful pictures and a feel-good story, this book is a win-win for kids & parents. Best of all it's based on Adonal Foyle - an all-around NBA good guy who parents can put their trust in as an appropriate role model for their little ones.
