About this title

Synopsis:

What made the Great Antonio so great? He weighed as much as a horse! He once wrestled a bear. He could devour twenty-five roasted chickens at one sitting. In this whimsical book, beloved author and illustrator Elise Gravel tells the true story of Antonio Barichievich, the larger-than-life Montreal strongman who had muscles as big as his heart.

"What’s to be made of lives that don’t go the way they were supposed to? Gravel shows that they’re worth paying attention to." - Publishers Weekly
