About this Book
An engaging look at life and legacy of Muhammad Ali for readers of all ages

Muhammad Ali was one of the world’s best-known figures, and this incredible biography delves into precisely why. From his unlikely beginnings as a skinny, young Cassius Clay learning to box at a local gym to becoming the heavyweight champion of the world at the famous “Rumble in the Jungle,” where even the skies let loose with rain right after his victory, Ali has captivated the world. Tonya Bolden’s careful research and elegant telling, paired with R. Gregory Christie’s incredible paintings, make this a book that will inform and inspire readers of all ages.

"Bolden's engaging text has a free-verse structure punctuated with enthusiastic exclamations that is enjoyable to read aloud....  The illustrations are striking."
