This doesn’t come out until 2017 but I feel like this will one of those talked-about books next year. With text by the late Walter Dean Myers about the remarkable life of Frederick Douglas and to pair it with Floyd Cooper’s beautiful illustrations, how can it not be?
I‘m a big fan of Duncan Tonatiuh’s art. I think I spent more time admiring his collages than the actual story of this musician I hadn’t heard of. (Maybe if I listen to snippets of his music, I will appreciate this book more.) I thought this would be like The Cosmobiography of Sun Ra by Chris Raschka.
I’ve been curious about this book for awhile. It was in interesting look into microbes- what they are and what they do. The illustrations are gorgeous. (I always thought Nicola Davies did the art but this book was illustrated by Emily Sutton.
