I Shook Up the World is an illustrated tribute to Muhammad Ali written by his oldest daughter, Maryum. The book tells Ali's story from the beginning to the present — how he started boxing, earned an Olympic Gold Medal, won the heavyweight championship, worked for civil rights, and made a principled stand against the Vietnam War. Ali’s trademark rhyming, the joy of his fans and the bane of his opponents, is interspersed throughout the “rounds” (chapters). Young readers will appreciate Patrick Johnson’s colorful illustrations, and the introduction provided by the great man himself. An historical timeline on Ali's life is included.
