“... illustrator Myers has captured the vibrant energy, bold hues, and expressionist shapes of Lawrence’s work. Rhodes-Pitts, meanwhile contributes colorful, energetic text... When an acclaimed author-illustrator team collaborate on a subject who is getting his due at a major museum, you're going to see heightened awareness and interest.”
"...Rhodes-Pitts has written a clear, simple tale, told in present tense and filled with colorful imagery. Myers’s art has a looser, sketchier quality than Lawrence’s more graceful figures, but both artists demonstrate a passion for vibrant, eye-popping colors that powerfully capture the African American experience... VERDICT Creative youngsters may be motivated to craft works about their own neighborhoods."
