About this title
A KNOCKOUT OF A BOOK about the world's most famous gym.
"At Gleason's Gym the world works out. It's down on the Brooklyn waterfront just a left hook away from the Brooklyn Bridge." This spectacular book puts you smack in the middle of the action. But it's more than a book about boxing: It's about the heart of a community, and about the power of practice, perseverance, and staying true to yourself. Paintings, sketches and words by Caldecott Honor artist and former professional wrestler Ted Lewin are your guide to this extraordinary place.About the Author:
Ted Lewin has written and/or illustrated at least 45 children's books. In order to finance art school, he became a wrestler--and so began a 15-year part-time career that eventually inspired his autobiography, I Was a Teenage Professional Wrestler (ALA Notable Children's Book, School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, Booklist Editor's Choice). He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
