Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A harmonious introduction to one of our country's most important singers--as envisioned by two of our industry's most important voices. Wide trade and institutional appeal.

Marian Anderson is best known for her historic concert at the Lincoln Memorial in 1939, which drew an integrated crowd of 75,000 people in pre-Civil Rights America. While this momentous event showcased the uniqueness of her voice, the strength of her character, and the struggles of the times in which she lived, it is only part of her story. Like the operatic arias Marian would come to sing, Ryan's text is as moving as a libretto, and Selznick's pictures as exquisitely detailed and elaborately designed as a stage set. What emerges most profoundly from their shared vision is a role model of courage.

Synopsis:

In a harmonious introduction to one of our country's most important singers, the author explores the uniqueness of Marian Anderson, best-known for her historic concert at the Lincoln Memorial in 1939, which drew an integrated crowd of over 75,000 people. Full color.

Synopsis:

Billie Holidayand#8212;also known as Lady Dayand#8212;had fame, style, a stellar voice, big gardenias in her hair, and lots of dogs. She had a coat-pocket poodle, a beagle, Chihuahuas, a Great Dane, and more, but her favorite was a boxer named Mister. Mister was always there to bolster her courage through good times and bad, even before her legendary appearance at New Yorkand#8217;s Carnegie Hall. Newtonand#8217;s stylish illustrations keep the simply told story focused on the loving bond between Billie Holiday and her treasured boxer. An authorand#8217;s note deals more directly with the singerand#8217;s troubled life, and includes a little-known photo of Mister and Lady Day!
