Rich and energetic illustrations are the backdrop for the singular story of blues musician Muddy Waters. The pages about Muddy's move to Chicago are collaged with newspaper headlines, adding a subtle but powerful message about the African American experience during the Great Migration. A great book for programs about music and American history.

I felt moved by the intense and BOLD artwork…the pages seemed to move with the story.

Wow! Beautiful and powerful. The art echos the feel of Waters' music as compared to the jazz he first found in Chicago.

A gorgeously illustrated picture book biography with nice oversized pages for sharing in a schoolage program. Share it to increase music appreciation or any time you want kids to be inspired by individuals who are passionate about their art. Be sure to play some of the Chicago blues selections listed in the back under "Further Listening".

So he found himself a half-smashed kerosene can to beat on. And a wheezy accordion to squeeze. And a tired piece of wire to pluck. And made himself enough noise to feel good. Not even Grandma Della could keep from dancing.
