9780140566222: John Henry (Picture Puffins)

Julius Lester and Jerry Pinkney's warm, humorous retelling of a popular African-American folk ballad.

When John Henry was born the birds, bears, rabbits, and even a unicorn came to see him. He grew so fast, he burst right through the porch roof, and laughed so loud, he scared the sun! Soon John Henry is swinging two huge sledgehammers to build roads, pulverizing boulders, and smashing rocks to smithereens. He's stronger than ten men and can dig through a mountain faster than a steam drill. Nothing can stop John Henry, and his courage stays with us forever.

A Caldecott Honor Book

* "This is a tall tale and heroic myth, a celebration of the human spirit . . . The story is told with rhythm and wit, humor and exageration, and with a heart-catching immediacy that connects the human and the natural world. " --Booklist, starred review

"Another winning collaboration from the master storyteller and gifted artist of Tales of Uncle Remus fame." --School Library Journal

"A great American hero comes fully to life in this epic retelling filled with glorious, detailed watercolors . . .  This carefully crafted updating begs to be read aloud for its rich, rhythmic storytelling flow, and the suitably oversize illustrations amplify the text." --Publishers Weekly

About the Author:

Julius Lester won a Newbery Honor for his groundbreaking book, To Be a Slave. He is also the author of The Tales of Uncle Remus: The Adventures of Brer Rabbit and Long Journey Home: Stories from Black History, a National Book Award finalist. He lives in Amherst, Massachusetts.

From AudioFile:

With talented readers, original musical and realistic sound effects, Weston Woods Studios elevates the read-along to a new height. This studio production of a celebrated and award-winning children's favorite, packaged with a hardcover book, will enchant listeners and create new audiences. Samuel L. Jackson's down-home reading of Julius Lester's 1995 Caldecott Honor Book, JOHN HENRY, is energetic and inviting. String-plucked blues accompany the tall tale of the African-American hero who proved his worth against a machine. Jackson's vigorous narration, including the booming voice of the Almighty Himself, combines with plentiful, authentic sound effects to introduce a celebrated American hero. T.B.
