Lalouche was a humble postman living in Paris France around 150 years ago He was not very tall and very skinny but he was nimble fast and strong Lalouche loved being a postman until the day he was told he was being let go because the postal service had bought a fleet of electric cars What was a small bony postman to do Then Lalouche saw an ad from the Bastille Boxing Club asking Are you nimble Are you fast Are you strong Well he was nimble and he was fast and he was strong so Lalouche answered the ad The Mighty Lalouche was born The Mighty Lalouche tells the tale of how one small bony postman became a boxing sensation Given the wrestling mania of today I found this historic tale to be entertaining I was a little confused because the boxers also used their feet and one even stood on Lalouche in the ring An author s note at the end explains la boxe francaise or French boxing allowed fighters to use their feet similar to our kickboxing today Although standing on your opponent was an no no The note also talks about the electric car used in the illustrations for the story It was a real electric car but a race car not one used for carrying the mail I think this is a good book for young boys interested in boxingwrestling or anytime you want to read a story book and throw some history in there tooI recommend it for children ages 4 6
