The art in this book is spectacular! Truly, I was so enamored with each turn of the page. In addition, the text was pretty good, making good use of onomatopoeia. I enjoyed this.

We learn how MicKinley grew up in Mississippi, his mother passed, he fell in love with the blues, and moved to Chicago to pursue his dream. He had a few shots at cutting a record, always doing what the producer said. The music went nowhere. Finally, at Chess, he refused. He played his raw blues. Chess cut 3,000 records that sold out in a day. More were quickly printed; Muddy was on his way.

I enjoyed this book.
