From Francesca Cavallo, author of the NY Times bestseller Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls.

This is the true story of Jean-Baptiste Alaize.
Now an exceptional sprinter and long jumper, Jean-Baptiste lost his right leg when he was just three years old during the civil war in Burundi. When he met his adoptive dad, Robert, Jean-Baptiste had never seen a white man before. But they bonded over the fact that his dad too had lost his right leg in an accident years before. Through the story of this extraordinary athlete, The Long Jump tackles themes such as transracial adoption, living with a disability, finding your purpose and achieving your dreams.

Paralympians is a non-fiction picture book series telling the stories of four champions who do things their own way and are reinventing sport.
