-->  The Mighty Lalouche by Matthew Olshan, illustrated by Sophie Blackall. A gentle Parisian postman's circumstances put him into the boxer's corner, where the underdog takes the day. Oh la la, the elegance of these illustrations certainly pack a punch. Based on a true story, with an illuminating author's note and fascinating endpaper portraits of past pugilists. Recommended by The PlanetEsme Plan.  Link for information, please support your local independent bookseller.
