Praise

“…[S]imple line drawings and stylish, expressive figures filled with layers of rich, warm color on pale, thickly painted backgrounds—capture Emmanuel’s triumphs beautifully.”
Booklist 

 ”Thompson…presents a warm, matter-of-fact overview of the life of Emmanuel Ofofu Yeboah…[while] Qualls provides solid visual and emotional scaffolding for the setbacks and triumphs Yeboah faced.”
—Publishers Weekly

“This powerful and winning picture book tells the story of a young man overcoming the odds.”
