Synopsis: Written by leading children's authors and compiled by leading experts in the field, DK Readers are one of the most delightful ways to capture children's interest and help children learn. Follow the dramatic story of Muhammad Ali -- both in and out of the ring. These 48-page books about fascinating subjects like pirates, mummies, and volcanoes are for proficient readers who can understand a rich vocabulary and challenging sentence structure. In addition to the stunning photographs, informative sidebars, and glossary, readers will find archival photographs and paintings. Averaging 4,500 to 5,000 words in length, Level 4 books are 40 percent pictures and 40 percent text. The Dorling Kindersley Readers combine an enticing visual layout with high-interest, easy-to-read stories to captivate and delight young bookworms who are just getting started. Written by leading children's authors and compiled in consultation with literacy experts, these engaging books build reader confidence along with a lifelong appreciation for nonfiction, classic stories, and biographies. There is a DK Reader to interest every child at every level, from preschool to grade 4.

From School Library Journal: Grade 1-4-This eye-catching title presents an up-to-date picture of the controversial boxer. Aimed at proficient readers who have graduated to chapter books, the text hits on the highlights of Ali's life and introduces boxing as a sport. It reads smoothly, beginning with the subject's childhood and ending with him being voted the Athlete of the Twentieth Century. Garrett focuses on the boxer's career, as well as his humanitarian efforts, religious beliefs, and political activism. The writer also discusses Ali's battle with Parkinson's disease. The illustrations are varied and relevant to the text, consisting of watercolor paintings and black-and-white and full-color photographs. Sidebars showcase boxing terms, present relevant historical notes, and explain pop-culture references. Due to the publicity about the movie Ali (2001) this biography will circulate. A good introduction to boxing and to Ali.
