Martin & Mahalia: his words, her song


by Andrea Davis Pinkney. Illustrated by Brian Pinkney. 40 p. Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, July, 2013. 9780316070133. (Review copy borrowed from the public library.)

Do we really need another book about Martin Luther King Jr.? Well, yes. I have a variety of books about him in my middle school library, from picture books to longer biographies. But this one is a new collaboration by the Pinkneys. Not only is a new book by them an automatic purchase regardless of subject, this one is a dual biography and it’s gorgeous.
