"An in-depth look at Ali’s life through twelve rhyming poems. . . . Collier’s bold pictures are among the best of his illustrious career."—BOOKLIST (starred review)A Coretta Scott King Honor Book A National Council for the Social Studies Notable Trade Book for Young PeopleFrom the moment a fired-up teenager won 1960 Olympic gold to the day when a retired legend, hands shaking from Parkinson’s, returned to raise the Olympic torch, the boxer known as "The Greatest" waged many a fight. Some were in the ring, against opponents like Sonny Liston and Joe Frazier; others were against societal prejudice and a war he refused to support because of his Islamic faith. The rap-inspired verse weaves and bobs and jabs, while bold collage artwork matches every move—capturing the "Louisville loudmouth with the great gift of rhyme" who shed the name Cassius Clay to take on the world as Muhammad Ali.
