5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book in verse about Muhammed Ali. Go for it!
By Reading_Tamishly on 8 November 2020
Do you know who was Cassius Clay?

But we sure do know the great boxing champion the world has ever seen: the one and only boxing legend who lived, Muhammad Ali!

The book is a biographical book in verse written amazingly with hard-hitting words which presented exactly what the characters would have felt during the times of struggle, all the pain and efforts, the wins and the joy of overcoming all the ruthless discrimination and racism Cassius Clay had to face ever since he was a kid.

I love how the writing and the illustrations depict well the grit and the genuine expressions he had.

I like the mention of the opponents of each fight with specific date records. The book told exactly how determined and different Cassius was from the very beginning. Nothing, I say, nothing distracted him; nothing would change his mind even when he tasted defeats. Instead he got more determined each time. He wanted to do something big and make a difference. Indeed, he did!

Some chapters in between aren't in verse, like the last chapter which talked about the final days of Muhammad Ali. I did end up crying. I came to realise he was a stronger personality much more than I thought he was! He didn't buckle under rules and regulations, he fought against them. He didn't do what others thought was necessary, he did things what he thought was necessary.

You will love this book and actually see how a person can make their life as they want when they are really determined. Kudos to the team for such a good book!

Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on 23 October 2020
Excellent book about Muhammad Ali’s childhood for any young reader and sports lover. The writing transitions beautifully between prose and poetry, offering an approachable introduction to poetry for junior readers. Charming illustrations balance the text and help bring the story of Cassius Clay to life. Would be a perfect book for a parent and child to read together, or as a gift for a middle schooler!
