In this tribute to Haiti and her children, the author imagines the dreams of a young boy trapped beneath the rubble for eight days, as he remembers the many places around Port-au-Prince where he has played and laughed and spent time with his family. In this way, Danticat captures the joy and beauty of Haiti before the earthquake, as well as her people's spirit and determination to survive. Vibrant illustrations by Alix Delinois bring this inspiring tale to life.
Cassius Clay learned to box when he was twelve, trained by Joe Martin in his native Louisville, Kentucky. He would go on to win the Golden Gloves championship and to box in the Olympics. Clay stunned not only the sports world but the world as a whole by winning the world boxing championship and changing his name to Muhammad Ali when he embraced Islam. His portrait is painted in a chronological account, highlighting Ali's words in text and dramatic full-color paintings.
