AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Before she was the Matildas World Cup superstar goalkeeper, Lydia Williams was just a young girl living in outback Australia, looking for fun ways to make friends. In this gorgeous picture book, Little Lydia learns to be the best she can be as she competes in a variety of sports against very unusual competitors. An inspiring celebration of self-belief, the joy to be had in sport, and the importance of persistence.

'Little Lydia loves sport. She lives in the outback and is friends with all the animals.
When she asks Emu, Kangaroo and Koala to play with her, she soon discovers that each of them has a special talent.
But does Lydia have a gift for sport too?
And if she does, how will she discover it?

'A funny and triumphant picture book by Lydia Williams, goalkeeper for the Australian Matildas.' (Publication summary)
