A wonderful, NEW story, aching with grief, leavened with a glimpse of a masterfully reinvented life at the end. Writing that actually reads as poetry instead of prose sentences artfully chopped up into teeny bits.

Nobody does line like the Dillons. ( )

A stunning, profoundly moving collaboration between a superb writer and two amazingly gifted artists. ( )

Powerful story about a African boy captured by the slave trade. Beautiful illustrations by the Dillons. You better have some tissues ready when you read this. ( )

Despite its picture book format this is a book that can be used from upper elementary through high school. In the author’s note Mrs. McKissack tells of her curiosity about how African literature and music portrayed those who were taken into slavery. This beautiful book is based on a legend she heard in Barbados that a hurricane was Mother Africa in search of her children. Never Forgotten uses verse to tell the story of Dinga the blacksmith whose beloved son Musafa is stolen. Dinga relies on the Four Elements who have helped raise Musafa to find the lost boy. Ultimately Wind reports that Musafa is now a successful blacksmith in Charleston, South Carolina. Never Forgotten is a novel-in-verse it must be read aloud. The woodcut style illustrations in gentle colors by Leo and Diane Dillon combine full page illustrations, with borders across the top or down the side of the page. I will definitely share this book the our drama teacher. ( )
