Product Details

Praise

“Hopkinson’s (Sky Boys) accessible, conversational narrative relays the little-known story of Oscar Chapman. . . Featuring bright swirling pastel patterns against deep blues and browns, Jenkins’s (Langston’s Train Ride) collage-like mixed-media illustrations deftly dramatize this illuminating and inspirational behind-the-scenes look at a triumphant moment in the civil rights movement.”—Publishers Weekly

“Jenkins’s mixed-media illustrations are freighted with emotion, unnatural colors and skewed angles underlining the tumult of feelings surrounding the events, scribbles of colored chalk making the connection between Chapman the impassioned schoolboy and Chapman the righteous man. . . it brings deserved attention to Chapman and underscores the very worthwhile message that one does not need to be a star to make a difference.”—Kirkus Reviews
