This very simple picture book is directed at young soccer players around the world in preparation for the World Cup Games in 2010 and the Women's World Cup in 2011. Madlenka has a new soccer ball. Now with whom shall she play? She starts in her immediate neighborhood against inanimate objects and even cats. She finally meets another girl, Cleopatra, and the fun begins.
