I liked learning about an aspect of history that I hadn't heard about before. The story of a slave poet is very intriguing. The book didn't quite convince me just how amazing this was, and I wished the author had gone into more historical detail. The illustrations were nice, but I wasn't particularly fascinated with them. While I thought they illustrated the story well, I didn't want to gaze at them for long periods of time. I liked this book, and I would probably recommend, but it wasn't my new favorite.
