Virginia Hamilton (a woman of colour) writes a heart-rending tale about Africans who forget how to fly on the slave ships on the way to America. But will they be able to remember? The poetic prose and soft illustrations are equally touching, and anyone who has wished they could remember how to fly will love this book.
Illustrated with the haunting illustrations of the Dillons, this picture book version of the titular story in the anthology graced under the same name has all new drawings as well as a breathtaking cover painting. The book also features endpapers of black with black feathers embossed on them. It’s a stunning addition and has to be seen to be truly appreciated.
This book is worth getting. It’s a handsome companion to the folktale compilation.
