MUHAMMAD ALI A CHAMPION IS BORN
Frank Morrison Studio
“There are highlights of his boxing fame, later years and racial-justice and humanitarian work. Morrison gives the art a joyful zing and a serious yet eminently kid-friendly vibe.” (New York Times Book Review)
“Boxing legend Muhammad Ali comes to life for young readers. Close-up, in-your-face oil illustrations and a lively text design with plenty of onomatopoeia (”POW! POW! POW!”) and quotations from the champ give readers a sense of the life and style of the great Muhammad Ali.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“Working in acrylic, Morrison creates visceral, dynamic action shots, whether it’s a young Cassius racing down a rainy street on his bicycle or an opening fight sequence...An extensive afterword fills in details about Ali’s life, faith, and activism.” (Publishers Weekly)
“Morrison’s dynamic oil paintings complement Barretta’s lively text, capturing a self-assured Ali in detailed spreads. Action scenes full of movement and intensity draw readers into the boxing ring and depict Ali’s growth from a gangly youth to a dominant athlete.” (School Library Journal)
“The book emphasizes the positive role model Ali became as he fought against racial and religious prejudice.” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch)
