About the Author:

Like his father, Sebastian Robertson is a musician and accomplished songwriter. He has written many songs for major television series such as Felicity, Boston Public, Boston Common, and Sammy, and is on staff with MTV as a composer for non-scripted shows. He lives with his family in Los Angeles.
Adam Gustavson is the award-winning illustrator of over twenty books for children, including Just Kidding by Trudy Ludwig, Snow Day! by Lester L. Laminack, and the Charlie Bumpers series by Bill Harley. His childhood was shaped in no small part by his parents' extensive album collection, which included several records of The Band. Adam holds an MFA from the School of Visual Arts and teaches at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. He lives in New Jersey with his family and several guitars.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 1–4—This attractive picture book biography profiles artist Robbie Robertson, founder of the Band, the group known for backing up Bob Dylan and for the songs "The Weight," "Up on Cripple Creek," and "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down." Written by Robbie Robertson's son, Sebastian, the book takes readers through Robbie's life, starting with his birth, covering his childhood in Toronto, development as a musician, and rise to fame, and ending in the mid-1970s with the Band's final performance. The use of dialogue adds to the appeal, keeping the tone lively and accessible. The tone is enthusiastic, bordering on worshipful at times ("It was now 1961 and people came from far and wide to hear the hottest, youngest guitar player around"). Gustavson's rich, nostalgia-tinged oil paintings will provoke plenty of smiles of recognition from adult rock fans, portraying as they do places such as the Brill Building, where Robbie met songwriters Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, and Big Pink, the house in Woodstock, New York, where the Band's most famous album was recorded, as well as artists with whom Robbie interacted, like Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, and, of course, Dylan. However, these details aren't likely to resonate with the intended audience, for whom the mere mention of Music from Big Pink and "The Last Waltz" won't conjure up beloved memories. Though this is a well-illustrated and nicely told story, the subject matter will limit its appeal.—Mahnaz Dar, School Library Journal
