Excellent illustrations add to a solidly written account of Joe Louis's victory over Max Schmeling in 1938. Wouldn't be surprised if it ended up a Caldecott or King contender.

Karen Really liked this one and think it would provide great background knowledge for A Bird in a Box. Thinking abt using both for read alouds.
