Product Details

Praise

“Employing direct, accessible, relentless language arranged in free-verse stanzas, the author brings to life the drama of Parks’s act (neither busting myths nor exploiting them) and the events it sparked. Walker’s double-page, large-scale oils evoke the emotions of a determined people and perfectly complement the text. The author’s note contextualizes the boycott and names Claudette Colvin and Mary Louise Smith as Parks’s forerunners. Powerful. (sources)” –Kirkus Reviews

“An inventive approach. . . . Kids will connect with the unsentimental, contemporary message: ‘Imagine where it has been / and where we have yet to go.'” –Booklist
