A Junior Library Guild Selection


A Junior Library Guild Selection This is a wonderful and inspirational biography for aspiring young dancers and other athletes. --The Washington Post Collins's story is told masterfully. . . Glenn fills each page with the strength and beauty of dance, focusing on the graceful movement of Collins and her emotive expressions. This book radiates with the joy of dance. A first purchase for most collections. --School Library Journal, starred review Writing in verse is no easy task, and Meadows's text almost never stumbles, keeping metronomic time with Ebony Glenn's illustrations of soaring, spinning Janet. Glenn's digital art is full of movement . . .An enchanting biography. --Shelf Awareness, starred review The digital illustrations have the look of pen drawings, rendering a graceful dancer's body with glowing brown skin and a self-possessed face. . . A celebration of one black woman's achievements that underscores the passion and purpose that the human spirit has to offer. --Kirkus Reviews Glenn illustrates in warm yet muted digital art; dynamic spreads show Collins dancing in a red flamenco dress to the sounds of a jazz ensemble. In a final spread, Collins dances at the Metropolitan Opera House in 1951--becoming the first African-American prima ballerina to do so. Meadows offers readers an affectionate biographical story that emphasizes her subject's passion and determination. --Publishers Weekly
