Andre Beard made connecting trains easy with the Jenny coupler’s big greasy hooks. Craig Thompson does it again with this bright, rhyme-filled book overflowing with black inventors such as, Elijah McCoy (the real McCoy), Augustus Jackson who revitalized ice cream, Madame C.J. Walker who changed black hair care, and many more. Craig Thompson moves the reader along with carefully chosen kid-speak that educates and stimulates. Put alongside the bright and vivacious illustrations by Roger James, this book comes alive.
