About the Author

Serena Williams exemplifies courage, beauty, power, and style, overcoming insurmountable odds to win a staggering 23 career Grand Slams. Her remarkable tennis achievements, combined with her off-court success in business, philanthropy and fashion, make her one of the most recognizable icons in the world and a powerful voice for women. In 2020, Williams founded Serena Ventures, which focuses on investing in companies that embrace diverse leadership, individual empowerment, creativity, and opportunity. As a mother and advocate for the power of imagination and representation, she created the Qai Qai doll for her daughter. The Adventures of Qai Qai is Serena's first book for children and shows all readers that good things can come, if you believe hard enough.

Reviews

"Williams' celebrity and Qai Qai's following will attract readers to this lively, encouraging tale of self-belief and friendship.. . .the vivid, fluid digital art effectively brings to life a story infused with magic and movement. An upbeat, energetic reminder that all children need support to help them learn to believe in themselves." --Kirkus

". . .the positive message will resonate with many, and the frilly outfits in neon pink and lavender will win others." --School Library Journal

"Tennis star Williams shows that her talents aren't limited to the court in this uplifting story of girlhood, family love, and magic. Filled with richly colored illustrations that see a preponderance of velvety purples and pinks, this book will particularly catch the eye of dancers and the Fancy Nancy set." --Booklist

"Moises's bright digital cartoon art, dominated by shades of purple, pink, and blue, aptly reflects the book's element of fantasy laced with optimism." --Publishers Weekly
