Muhammad Ali was a Chicken? (Wait! What?)

Written by Dan Gutman, Illustrated by Allison Steinfeld

Muhammad Ali was a Chicken? is another addition in the biography series, “Wait! What?” by Dan Gutman. It is written as a conversation between a brother and sister, Paige and Turner. Gutman’s series deviates from traditional biographies by adding humor and odd and unusual facts about a person’s life. For instance, did you know that Muhammad Ali hired a sweat taster? Or that he was afraid of flying so he wore a parachute on the plane to the 1960 Rome Olympics? This new series will educate and entertain readers. As more biographies are released, this series is sure to be a hit!
