Eve Bunting focuses on the funeral procession of Dr. King, beginning with the two men who found the cart to carry him through the streets of Atlanta. After painting it green, two mules named Belle and Ada are hitched to the cart where Dr. King’s coffin is placed.

All the while, crowds of people pay their respects by singing songs of hope.
Bunting’s thoughtful, well-chosen words, coupled with Don Tate’s soft colors provide the reader with a sense of hope and reverence, rather than the grief and despair one might expect.
Back matter includes a brief introduction to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s work, assassination, and funeral, accompanied by a full-color historical photograph of the real cart, drawn by Belle and Ada.

Fifteen-year-old Barry O’Neill is journeying to New York to reunite with his parents on the maiden voyage of the great ship Titanic. He’s homesick, and worried about the Flynn boys traveling in steerage, who have threatened to throw him overboard. Little does Barry know that a struggle with the Flynns is the least of the dangers that await him.
This “fast-paced” and suspenseful young adult adventure story is based on the true and terrible events that occurred as the Titanic sank, and “immerses readers in the many human tragedies” (Booklist).
