New illustrated book on Williams sisters

A new book for children four to eight years of age, written by ESPN journalist Howard Bryant and beautifully illustrated by Floyd Cooper, will be out in May.

It’s already available for pre-order.


“Sisters and Champions: The True Story of Venus and Serena Williams” will bring the against-all-odds story of the two sisters from Compton, Calif. and their rise to the top of the sports world to a new audience of young kids.

If hearing (and seeing) their story can inspire even a few more youngsters to discover the sport of tennis, it’s win-win.
