Frederick Douglass: The Lion Who Wrote History

Reinberger Review

With signature grace and style, Walter Dean Myers and Floyd Cooper harmoniously depict the life of Frederick Douglass in this picturebook biography. The storyline highlights the turning points in Douglass’s life, from the moment he realizes the value of words and education, to his quest for knowledge, freedom and equal rights for all.  As the story moves, Cooper’s award-winning erasers-and-oil style force one to pause, as he reveals emotion and thought through the eyes in his portraits. An excellent addition to any biography collection.
