Review

Bryant recounts the deeply moving story of an African American veteran and artist, Horace Pippin. Sweet’s artistic work covers his pages with Horace Pippin quotes that are integral to profoundly enriching the story. A delightfully deep book.

A book that all reading levels can understand. Author and Illustrator Notes explain how they worked together preparing and researching the book. Further reading, film, websites, and quote sources listed. The back cover shows locations to view Horace Pippin’s artwork. Useful for classroom instruction for history, social studies, or art.

Highly Recommended. Rebekkah Reisner, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University
