Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nothing can stop John Henry--no boulder, no mountain, and definitely no steam drill. Newbery Honor winner Julius Lester writes with such power that this African-American folk hero becomes as awesome as a natural phenomenon. Jerry Pinkney received a Caldecott Honor for his exuberant, glowing watercolor paintings of the hero. The book, celebrating its tenth year in print, was also a Boston Globe--Horn Book Award winner, a Parents magazine Best Book, and an ALA Notable Book, among other honors.
