MUHAMMAD ALI. by Jonah Winter & illustrated by François Roca. Roca’s beautiful poster-like oils are built on strong horizontal and vertical lines, the light shining on Ali emphasizing his status as Chosen One. Playful typography allows highlighted words to pop off the page, visual punches to underscore Ali’s determination and personality. A prefatory note gives readers some background and prepares them for the presentation to come. As hagiography goes, it doesn’t come any more unabashed than this-or more effective.

He held his hands up in victory and appeared to shout in triumph while the Great White Hope was sprawled out in the boxing ring. Jack Johnson, "the first black king in the Kingdom of Boxing" was a winner, but people hated him for his pride and the color of his skin so he disappeared. Then there was Joe Louis, "The Brown Bomber." Children would gather round his poster imitating the stance of this proud champion. Many years later another generation of children pretended to be like the new king of boxing, Sonny Liston. Now he was able to knock a man out in the first round, but God asked, "IS THAT ALL THERE IS TO A BOXER?" Perhaps there was another king of boxing just waiting to enter the scene.

Yes, there was another proud young man who, when "the heavens opened up," would stun the world with not only his boxing ability, but his boldness and pride. A young Cassius Clay claimed that he would be "THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME." He was a talker, who would take a microphone, point his finger straight at a camera and boast of his future victories. He won the Olympic gold medal and boldly stepped up and told the world they would remember him. He would take on Sonny, but people were saying he was full of hot air. In return he would say things like, "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, you can't hit what you can't see." POW, POW, POW! Was Cassius Clay going to become all he said he would be?

No book will ever capture the amazing spirit of Cassius Clay, later known as Muhammad Ali, but this book comes fairly close to it. Many of his sayings are printed in oversize bold print, emphasizing and attempting to recreate his bravado. The paintings are absolutely gorgeous and manage to step back in time and grab him in his prime. They even get that determined look in his eyes perfectly. This is a book that will be introduced to a generation of children who may never have heard of him, but any parent or grandparent will have fond memories of the great Muhammad who really did seem to float like a butterfly and sting like a bee!
