Reviews

Praise for Saving American Beach Holmes' stunning, intricately composed paint-and-collage images bring MaVynee to life in full color . . making each spread visually rich, realistic, and fascinating. King's storytelling, Holmes' artwork, and informative backmatter portray MaVynee Betsch as the larger-than-life Black environmentalist she was. A spectacular story about a little-known eco-warrior whose story should be told and retold. --Kirkus Reviews This lushly illustrated picture-book biography tells the story of MaVynee Betsch, an opera-singing African American environmentalist and activist . . . Holmes' vibrant, multilayered collages aptly evoke the ocean and shifting sands, and are especially effective in capturing MaVynee's determined stance, her brilliant outfits, and her seven-foot-long tresses. . . This story of a wealthy, sophisticated, talented, and larger-than-life activist deserves a wide audience. --Booklist
