Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Christopher Paul Curtis’ first novel, The Watsons Go to Birmingham, was awarded both a Newbery Honor and a Coretta Scott King Honor. His second novel, Bud, Not Buddy, won the Newbery Medal and the Coretta Scott King Award in 2000. He is also the author of the Golden Kite Award-winning Bucking the Sarge, Mr. Chickee’s Funny Money, and Mr. Chickee’s Messy Mission. These titles are all available on audio from Listening Library.

From AudioFile

A rich story and authentic sounding dialect distinguish this dynamic audio. Curtis's Caldecott Honor Book tells the story of Elijah, an 11-year-old boy who is the first freeborn black in his Buxton, Canada, settlement. Elijah is working on overcoming his fears of snakes and living down the story of how, as a baby, he threw up on Frederick Douglass. Mirron Willis delivers depth of emotion as he shapes the story's rhythms and pacing. He successfully shifts from a light comedic tone of much of the story to a tone of chilling determination when Elijah becomes involved in a dangerous mission to free a group of slaves. S.W.
