Book Description

Sept. 11 2007
LEO AND DIANE DILLON'S award-winning picture book interpretation of Newbery Medalist Virginia Hamilton's beloved tale now includes an unforgettable word-for-word CD narration by James Earl Jones and Virginia Hamilton. This tale of slaves who could fly to freedom offered hope in the darkly brutal times of slavery. "That is what Virginia Hamilton set out to show, what the Dillons have so astutely expounded on and what ultimately makes this version of 'People' so powerful. Think of it as a triad of words, pictures, and storytelling." - New York Times Book Review

An elegant gift for reading, looking, and listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Sept. 19 2013
By J. L. Bryant - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I received this book as a child with the cassette tape of the stories. I listened over and over again and continued to read the short stories until I was a teenager. When I became older and had a nephew and a niece, I gave them a copy of this book. I am writing this review as I purchase a copy for my children. I think the stories are beautifully written and engaging from age 3 to 30.
5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite presentation of a literary treasure! March 29 2014

I purchased this edition in order to introduce my fourth-grade students to the gifts of author Virginia Hamilton and illustrators Diane and Leo Dillon. The children's response could not have been more inspiring! By the end of the lesson, we had discussed myths, symbolism, the Underground Railroad, and the wondrous voice of James Earl Jones. This is a true work of art!
