Book Overview

"The big story here is is the 1927 Jack Dempsey-Gene Tunney fight for the World Heavyweight Championship in Chicago. The small story, though, is about Willie Brinkman, a paperboy on a 'small potatoes' corner in Cincinnati. . . . An engaging work that will bring home, through well-chosen details and a well-told story, the intimate connections one can make with 'famous facts' when the personal perspective is added." --School Library Journal

This book, based on a true story, is both informative and entertaining. The story is set in 1927 in Cincinnati and revolves around the fight that Jack Dempsey did not win. But the theme of the book is what makes it such an excellent book. The paperboy did not quit just because his was not the best corner or the "Extra" did not sell well. He was dependable and rewarded for doing his best. The book appeals to all ages of children and even to adults.
