LEO AND DIANE DILLON’S award-winning picture book interpretation of Newbery Medalist Virginia Hamilton’s beloved tale now includes an unforgettable word-for-word CD narration by James Earl Jones and Virginia Hamilton. This tale of slaves who could fly to freedom offered hope in the darkly brutal times of slavery. “That is what Virginia Hamilton set out to show, what the Dillons have so astutely expounded on and what ultimately makes this version of ‘People’ so powerful. Think of it as a triad of words, pictures, and storytelling.” – New York Times Book Review An elegant gift for reading, looking, and listening.
