Rich and energetic illustrations are the backdrop for the singular story of blues musician Muddy Waters. The pages about Muddy's move to Chicago are collaged with newspaper headlines, adding a subtle but powerful message about the African American experience during the Great Migration. A great book for programs about music and American history.

I felt moved by the intense and BOLD artwork…the pages seemed to move with the story.
