Reviews
"Weatherford presents an overview of key moments in the notable singer's life, particularly her contributions to the civil rights movement. Morrison's rich illustrations use a stylized realism to depict Franklin's trajectory from preacher's daughter to beloved icon."--Publishers Weekly
* "The award-winning author-illustrator team of Weatherford and Morrison have taken on the life story of the Queen of Soul, and the result is a beautiful work of art."--Booklist, STARRED review
* "The interplay between the deceptively simple narrative and Morrison's illustrations is pitch-perfect. This beautiful picture book biography packs an emotional punch that is as compelling as the timeless songs that Franklin made famous." --School Library Journal, STARRED Review
