Book Review #430
Henry's Freedom Box by Ellen Levine, illustrated by Kadir Nelson
Rating: four stars (out of four)

The illustrations for this book were absolutely breathe-taking.  I loved how the people were drawn, with such vivid details of their skin and faces, almost like they were looking straight at you, telling you their story.  This story had sad elements, but still managed to have a happy, if bittersweet ending.  I would definitely recommend this book.
