Description

Edited by Sarah Jane Boyers

Maya Angelou's poetry pairs  with Jean-Michel Basquiat's paintings to creates this gorgeous  celebration of fearlessness. Originally published in 1993, this picture  book will have a second life in a fresh, giftable package, featuring a  smaller trim, cloth spine, and uncoated paper. Maya Angelou's uplifting  poem is a timeless mantra that will empower readers of all ages. A  picture book treasure for both adults and children. 

Maya Angelou's brave, defiant poem celebrates the courage within each of  us, young and old. From the scary thought of panthers in the park to  the unsettling scene of a new classroom, fearsome images are summoned  and dispelled by the power of faith in ourselves.
Angelou's  strong words are matched by the daring vision of artist Jean-Michel  Basquiat, whose childlike style reveals the powerful emotions and  fanciful imaginings of childhood. Together, Angelou's words and  Basquiat's paintings create a place where every child, indeed every  person, may experience his or her own fearlessness.
