Product Details

Praise

Merging history and magic, this is a tale like no other. . . . this tale is full of whimsy and wordplay, and is an excellent read-aloud. The ­illustrations, done with paint on canvas, beautifully complement the storytelling voice. Using the angle of the light, magic becomes visible to the reader. . . These heroics read like a classic folktale. With ­delightful text, and beautiful artwork, it is one not be skipped.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Holyfield’s (Hammering for Freedom) bold, painterly illustrations use skewed scale and perspective to add drama and motion to each spread, while Barclay Moore’s (The Stars Beneath Our Feet) realistic account of anti-Black racism is imbued reassuringly with the supernatural as a means of a Black community’s enduring and escaping oppression.

—Publishers Weekly

Each page turn brings fresh delights via the engaging acrylic paintings that create drama through the use of various perspectives. . . compelling.
—Kirkus Reviews

A folksy original yarn. . . Holyfield’s warm, richly detailed country settings give way to aerial views of the town gliding grandly through grassy woodlands and salt marshes.
—Booklist

Moore’s original folktale is beautifully illustrated in Holyfield’s signature style and is sure to become a classic.
—The Toledo Blade
