Reviews

Coretta Scott King Honor for Illustrator "This book is likely to fascinate older children and reluctant readers who might be familiar with Hendrix's music, and could easily be tied into art and music curricula."--School Library Journal, starred review "The author--an artist and clinical social worker--lucidly demonstrates that a path to creative excellence is not only possible for young people but self-actualizing."--Kirkus, starred review "Valuable lessons underlie newcomer Golio's account of Hendrix's life: important work can be done by young people; artistry develops slowly, through careful work; and surroundings that appear hostile to creativity can just as well nurture it."--Publishers Weekly --
