By Carin T. Ford. How did a stolen bicycle inspire twelve-year-old Cassius Clay to become a boxer? Why did he later decide to change his name to Muhammad Ali? This action-packed account takes readers into the ring with the charismatic champ. Ali's lightning-quick style and heckling rhymes made him a legend-but there is far more to Ali than boxing awards and riches. Despite the limitations of Parkinson's syndrome, Ali has spent his retirement years working for children's charities and world peace. Inside the boxing ring and out, Ali is the best-known sports hero of all time. Enslow Publishers (2006), English, Young Reader Ed. (age 12 and up), Hardcover: 128 pages.
