Synopsis: A picture book biography that will inspire readers to dance to their own beats!

Singer, dancer, actress, and independent dame, Josephine Baker felt life was a performance. She lived by her own rules and helped to shake up the status quo with wild costumes and a you-can’t-tell-me-no attitude that made her famous. She even had a pet leopard in Paris!

From bestselling children’s biographer Jonah Winter and two-time Caldecott Honoree Marjorie Priceman comes a story of a woman the stage could barely contain. Rising from a poor, segregated upbringing, Josephine Baker was able to break through racial barriers with her own sense of flair and astonishing dance abilities. She was a pillar of steel with a heart of gold—all wrapped up in feathers, sequins, and an infectious rhythm.

About the Author: Jonah Winter is the author of Barack, Dizzy, Diego, and Atheneum’s own Sonia Sotomayor, and Roberto Clemente, to name a few. He lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Marjorie Priceman
has won Caldecott Honors for Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin by Lloyd Moss and for Hot Air: The (Mostly) True Story of the First Hot-Air Balloon Ride, which she also wrote. She lives in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.
