A fantasy-adventure picture book that both boys and girls will want to read time after time, while they learn about tennis and its truly international appeal. Readers of all ages will be delighted by this brightly illustrated, rhyming story of magical tennis racquets escorting twins across the globe to glamorous tennis ports of call--New York, London, Paris, and Melbourne. Written by a former tennis professional, Marissa Irvin Gould, has played the sport at the highest level-- winning matches at all four Grand Slam events. She is also a mother of three young children and an elementary school teacher with a passion for learning.
