Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro rose from poverty in Portugal to become one of the wealthiest men to ever play football. His father, a poor gardener who drank too much, and his mother, who waited tables and other odd jobs to provide care for four children, recognized his talent early and pulled him from school at a young age so he could devote his boundless energy to the game he loved. Wearing the number seven worn by David Beckham, Ronaldo’s speed, footwork, and skills as a forward and a winger have forged him one of the sport’s most respected players of all time.

Few footballers are honored to wear the number 10 on their jersey. Pelé, Diego Maradona, and now, Lionel Messi have felt the weight of that number, and all have excelled. With five Ballon d’Ors (French for “golden balls”), awarded for meritorious achievement by FIFA (the Fédération Internationale de Football Association), this shy player from Argentina, one of the youngest ever to play the game professionally, proves that to excel, one must know yourself and push yourself to succeed.

Muhammad Ali. His ferocious skill inside the ring made him a champion, his gentle spirit outside made him a hero, and his courage in life made him a legend. Like David taking on Goliath, he fought against the biggest and the strongest and managed to come out on top. Like a modern day Robin Hood, he gave his wealth to the poor. He had the good looks of a movie star and the words of a poet, and left his fans and critics absolutely spellbound every time. He soon became the champion of the world, but gave it all up by standing for what he believed in. Refusing to abandon his Muslim faith, and refusing to fight in the Vietnam War, cost him the best years of his career, and nearly stripped him of his freedom. But Muhammad Ali survived it all, and fought his way back to the top all over again.

Ralph is just trying to get home from school without getting picked on by the local bully. He's not trying to run smack into that bully. He's also not trying to wake up hours later in the body of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. And he's DEFINITELY not trying to do battle in an alien arena in order to save Earth from the evil Cloberus Crunch. Unfortunately for Ralph, this is exactly what happens.  Armed only with a new body (with very tiny arms) and his wits, Ralph is expected to not only defend himself and his planet in hand-to-hand combat with ferocious aliens, he must also navigate a new world filled with all sorts of creatures Ralph has never imagined, in which it can be difficult to tell friend from foe. This zany, hilarious story will appeal to anyone who loves dinosaurs, aliens, and adventure.
