The blues aren't all sad. There's joy in the blues as well as heartbreak. Love discovered. Love lost. Love just around the corner.

In this beautiful tribute to the poetry and art of the blues, renowned author Walter Dean Myers collaborates with his son, award-winning illustrator Christopher Myers, in a true masterpiece of picture book creation filled with struggle, grief, hope, joy, and love.

Each original blues-style verse on a page calls out a response from the artist in striking tones of brown, black, white, and blue. Together, father and son weave an enchanting story of the creation of the blues through the experiences of African Americans from the end of slavery through the beginning of the civil rights movement.

This book is for older children who love music and their parents who will appreciate the layered sophistication of the striking artwork and interplay between art and text.

Includes an author's note explaining the birth and development of the blues, a timeline of blues milestones, and an explanatory glossary of terms in the blues. Together this content deepens the appreciation for the blues as a truly original art form.
A Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award Honor book.
An ALA Notable book.

About the Author:

Walter Dean Myers (1937-2014) was one of the premier authors of books for children, and received numerous awards including a Newbery Honor, recognition as the National Ambassador for Young People's literature, and the first-ever Michael L. Printz award, a Coretta Scott King honor, and a National Book Award finalist for his novel Monster. He collaborated with Christopher Myers on Jazz (a Coretta Scott King Honor book) and wrote Here in Harlem.

Christopher Myers is a writer and fine artist, but he is best known for his award-winning picture books, including the Caldecott and Coretta Scott King Honor book Harlem, written by his father, and his own Black Cat and H.O.R.S.E, both of which received Coretta Scott King Honor Awards. He lives and works in New York City.
