Editorial Reviews

“Barnett’s confiding tone draws readers in...then makes the case for Brown’s work.”

— Publishers Weekly <strong>(starred review)</strong>

“Children old enough to look back at their Brown favorites with happy nostalgia will surely enjoy this creatively rendered backstory, while teachers and librarians will see connections between Moore’s collection exclusion and broader issues of access, making this age-accessible material for Banned Books Week.”

— Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books <strong>(starred review)</strong>

“A book with a brave appeal, and its admiration of Brown and respect for children makes it a standout picture-book biography.”

— ALA Booklist (starred review)
