Everyone knows the names Venus and Serena Williams. They work hard, they win championships, and they changed tennis forever. Sisters & Champions - The True Story of Venus and Serena Williams is written by Howard Bryant, an award-winning sports journalist who knows the Williams family personally. It tells of the sisters' journey from a barely-there tennis court in Compton, California to becoming the #1 ranked women in the sport of tennis. It was illustrated by Floyd Cooper and published by Philomel Books.
