Editorial Reviews

Review

★ "This graphic-novel adaptation of Alexander's 2015 Newbery Medal winner offers powerful visuals to an already-cherished narrative....Veteran comics illustrator Anyabwile brings an expansive range of black-boy emotional expressiveness to the page, accompanied by a striking attention to detail and pop-cultural reference....Flashy and engaging with emotional depth—a slam-dunk thrill."Kirkus, STARRED review

★ "A fresh look at the Newbery Medal–winning book, still told in verse but now stunningly illustrated by Anyabwile....With lively poems that use basketball as a metaphor for life, this mix of free verse, hip-hop, and powerful artwork will resonate with fans of the original book and inspire a new audience of nascent players, artists, and poets."—School Library Journal, STARRED review

"An energetic and lively re-envisioning, this transformation of the original text into a combination of visuals, poetry, and changing font styles will be sure to engage young readers who are both familiar and unfamiliar with Alexander’s original work."—Booklist

"With confident strokes and choice details...the graphic version brings out the best in the original, as any good teammate should."—Publishers Weekly

"Alexander’s Newbery Medal–winning verse novel of the same name (rev. 5/14), about African American twins and middle-school b-ballers Josh and JB Bell, is an ideal choice for graphic-novel adaptation, with its on-court action, swagger­ing narrative voice, and poignant emotional pitches. The original novel’s success mingling accessible poetry with basketball, middle-school dynam­ics, and Black boyhood is reinforced by Anyabwile’s impressive visual interpreta­tion. " —The Horn Book
