Ris­ing up from hum­ble ori­gins The Strong­est Man in the World: The Leg­end of Louis Cyr, by Lu­cie Pap­ineau, chron­i­cles the amaz­ing true story of Cy­prien-noé Cyr from his hard­work­ing boy­hood as the old­est of seven­teen chil­dren through his trans­for­ma­tion from lum­ber­jack to pro­fes­sional weight lifter and world-class cham­pion. Caro­line Ham­mel’s charm­ingly off­beat char­ac­ter­i­za­tions per­fectly cap­ture Cyr’s mix of Vic­to­rian Era im­mi­grant and cir­cus strong­man, and a bonus dust jacket dou­bles as a poster com­plete with time­line and pho­tographs.
