A picture book that shines light on the indomitable life of one of the most influential American folksingers in the history of our country.

In the spirit of WHEN MARIAN SANG, this book introduces young readers to Odetta, an American folk legend. Lyrical text and striking paintings tell the story of the incredible singer whose life and works inspired such icons as Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, and Tracy Chapman. The book comes from the author's long and fruitful artistic relationship with Odetta and is based on personal dialogues he had with her before her death in December 2008.

From Odetta

Now, we may not all
sing the same, but we
can all sing along.
Let's sing with the Queen
of Folk, this wildly
famous song:

This little light of mine.
I'm gonna let it shine.

Black keys
and white keys
singing TOGETHER
to create HARMONIOUS sound!
