Product Description:

New York Times bestselling author Walter Dean Myers explores Muhammad Ali's life and recounts his most famous fights in this celebrated picture book biography. Myers examines the depth and complexity of the larger-than-life legend and heavyweight champion of the world, and the bold, vibrant art of Alix Delinois reflects the beauty and power of the man who could "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee."

Review:

“Exuberant. Delinois’s painterly illustrations express the famous boxer’s energy as well as the political upheaval around him.” (The Horn Book)

“Unexpectedly far reaching, this is a Muhammad Ali for the thinking child.” (ALA Booklist)

“Artwork, rendered in a painterly style, is dramatic and enhances the boldness of this boxing superstar.” (School Library Journal)

“This artful biography of Muhammad Ali begins with his childhood in Louisville, Ky.—he started learning how to fight after his bicycle was stolen—and offers snapshots of his hard-earned career in the world of boxing. Visually striking.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Delinois’s emotive style packs a prismatic punch of its own. The total effect is energetic and disorienting, getting to the raw emotional impact of victory, loss, confrontation and peace.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Illustrations in oils in rich browns, shades of grays, and white highlights show the fighter Muhammad Ali in many action poses exhibiting his strength and lightning speed. Sure to provide inspiration for young readers.” (Booklist)
