'comic-style illustrations are fresh and excellent addition to the inspiring Little People, Big Dreams series' * BookTrust * 'I adore this series and the two new books about Muhammad Ali and Stephen Hawking really captured both Daniel and Emma's imagination. It resulted in lots of conversation about Ali in particular and watching some of his memorable speeches and a little of his fights.' * Let Them Be Small *
