Noura does not see why she should be barred from playing football just because she’s a girl. So she puts together the village’s first mixed team of boys and girls to play in the local league. With her father acting as their coach, her team trains hard and win their first match by a convincing margin. A second match brings another victory and, before long, Noura’s team wins the gold medal given by the villagers. It’s a theme that’s new in Arabic children’s literature and Zahr al-Din’s illustrations add to the fun. The text is fully vocalised.
