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.

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.
