Reviews

"A dramatic encounter indeed."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"This picture-book biography matches Mandela's outsize achievements with large, powerful images, resulting in a presentation that will seize and hold readers' attention."--School Library Journal
"A beautifully designed book that will resonate with children and the adults who wisely share it with them."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"An extremely powerful picture-book biography of South Africa's first black president. It's a solid biography in its own right, but thanks to Nelson's characteristically stunning paintings, it soars."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
