Not only did John Parker buy his own freedom to escape slavery, he helped as many as 900 other slaves escape on the Underground Railroad. Poetic language and deeply hued illustrations convey this stirring story. Historical notes are included.
John Lennon and his music are introduced to a new generation in Lennon's own words, using free verse and lyrics. With Collier's rich collage and watercolor illustrations in a large-sized format (like Martin's Big Words) this memorable presentation becomes a tribute to the music legend and visionary.
Martin Luther King Jr. grew up fascinated by big words. He would later go on to use these words to inspire a nation and call people to action. In this award-winning book, powerful portraits of King show how he used words, not weapons, to fight injustice.
