The life story of Muhammad Ali—boxing champion, humanitarian, civil rights activist, and philanthropist—in graphic novel format.

Muhammad Ali: The Greatest of All Time! introduces young readers to a sporting icon who was larger than life. Considered to be one of the greatest boxers in history, Muhammad Ali went from a rough childhood in Kentucky to an Olympic gold medalist and world heavyweight boxing champion. Known for his outlandish verbal sparring with opponents, Ali was also a civil rights activist, humanitarian, and philanthropist, who spent much of his post-boxing career helping others despite being affected by Parkinson’s disease. With colorful illustrations and historically accurate text, this entertaining account of Ali’s life will inspire a new generation of readers with the true story of one of America’s greatest athletes.
