A beautiful story about dreaming big and following your passions – even when those dreams feel too big to come true. If you have a little one that loves soccer (or football), this is the book for them without a doubt!

"From thousands of drawings,
a winner is plucked.
And that lucky person,
goes to the World Cup!"
A sequel to Melita Cyril's book Quinn's Socks, this rhyming story is about Quinn's friend, Reya, who adores soccer. She enters a drawing contest to win a trip to the World Cup, but will her perseverance, imagination and creativity be enough to come out on top?
This book was inspired by my life.
I was raised in Sri Lanka – a culture that values tradition. Luckily, I had parents who pushed me to dream big and follow my passions. As a girl, I was encouraged to pursue traditionally male-dominated sports and careers.
I hope that by telling this story, more parents will encourage their kids to be who they are and go for their dreams (whatever they happen to be).
I hope you and your kids enjoy reading The Contest as much as I enjoyed writing it.
