Night Boat to Freedom
( by Margot Theis Raven/illus. by E.B. Lewis, Farrar Straus $16 Score: ) Granny Judith urges 12-year-old Christmas John to take others across the river from Kentucky to Ohio and freedom under the dark moon. Each time he returns, he tells Franny the color his passengers wore, the colors of freedom. Granny uses her dye pots to make a quilt of freedom that will take them across one day. A moving story inspired by reading hundreds of slave narratives collected in the 1930s. Masterful storytelling and art are perfectly blended! 7 & up.
