5.0 out of 5 starsA book as dazzling as Josephine Baker
Reviewed in the United States on December 16, 2020
Though it took a short while to appreciate the illustrations, as the poetic, almost musical biography proceeded I became fascinated as text and art merged. The facts of Baker's unique life, her triumph over every obstacle, her ultimate bravery and kindness melt hearts. She was a saint. I love this story
1.0 out of 5 starsNOT a book - quick, simplified and illustrated kid's book
Reviewed in the United States on October 28, 2018
I thought this would be a normal biography of the artist. It was only about 20 digital pages. Basically a kid's book version of her life. I finished it in 10 minutes and paid more $$ than minutes it took to read.
This book is just to good to be true. I was so surprised at the wonderful illustrations that matched the text. The life of Josephine from her childhood intertwined with her adult life. I could not put the book down. Read it and you will be delighted..
