    " Read this today for a Mock Caldecott session at Multnomah County Library and found it to be the most compelling choice. The illustrations with the motif of the mighty fighter's hands and the effective use of perspective, space and type help to amplify this fine homage to the great boxer. "

    " A handsomely illustrated, engaging introduction to the world's first black heavyweight champion. The illustrations and text effectively capture Jack Johnson's defiance, fearlessness, and flamboyance. "
