From the publisher:
Bella Balistica is wild about football. The trouble is, her team isn't playing well. "We need a decent ball to practice with", she groans to her friend Charlie, "and some dazzling Brazilian football skills". With the help of her friend the Quetzal bird, Bella harnesses the powers of her mystical pendant and flies to Brazil to meet a street-child called Ronaldo who reveals the real secret of Brazil's spectacular footballing success.
