“While sports fans will find the story eminently readable for its tale of victory, they’ll also find here a depth of wisdom that’s not usually associated with sports writing…This is a rewarding read and, with a chronology and index, it’s a most welcome and much needed addition to black Canadian history for children.”
–Deirdre Baker, The Toronto Star

“…it is fascinating to read about Lewis’s experiences…Rapid Ray is definitely worth reading.”
–Canadian Children’s Book News
