Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Langston Hughes, Countee Cullen, and James Baldwin have sung their songs about Harlem. Now Newbery Honor author Walter Dean Myers joins their chorus in calling to life the deep, rich and hope-filled history of this community. Christopher Myers's boldly assembled art resonates with feeling and tells a tale all its own.

Review:

"A hot new artist and his distinguished father fashion a picture book with a stirring sound at its center." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Christopher Myers's deep-hued collage art is glorious. Whether he is depicting the hands of a woman washing greens or a preacher conducting Sunday service, a pickup basketball game or a young boy with his father on a fire escape, his work takes you into Harlem's heart." Rosemary L. Bray, New York Times Book Review
