Staff Reviews

"One of the things we all know about books is that stories have incredible power. This lesson is something that is at the core of Kwame Mbalia's Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky and a lesson that Tristan struggles to learn during the course of his adventures through African legend and African American folklore. John Henry and Brer Rabbit rub shoulders with Anansi in a book that tells a story of loss, friendship and finding yourself."

— Thomas
