Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

I am a story.

So are you.

So is everyone.

Julius Lester says, "I write because our lives are stories. If enough of these stories are told, then perhaps we will begin to see that our lives are the same story. The differences are merely in the details." Now Mr. Lester shares his own story as he explores what makes each of us special. Karen Barbour's dramatic, vibrant paintings speak to the heart of Lester's unique vision, truly a celebration of all of us.

Synopsis:

Award winners Lester and Barbour deliver an original and boldly painted exploration of the commonalities shared by everyone and the details that make each person unique. Full color.
