    De la Pena's story paints a picture in our minds of racism and pride; Nelson's superb illustrations make those images appear on paper.  Readers will learn about (and a few will remember) the hope placed on Louis by so many Americans, a hope that he would be victorious in the ring over the Germam boxer, Max Schmeling.  How was it that this black man did not enjoy the same rights as the white Americans who rooted for him?  Did they worship Joe Louis one day and turn a blind eye to him the next?  These are questions that might be posed in the classroom or discussed parent to child.  This book is a delight to be shared.

    Highly recommended!

    I sent this book to my brother-in-law as a birthday gift. He called to say that he really enjoyed the book. He sat and read the whole book as soon as he received it. This turned out to be a wonderful gift idea!!

    I read this book in school and it was pretty good, but is it really worth 11$?
