While this presents the story og MLK, I was put off by the structure of the book. The idea is that the storyteller had a dream of MLK. In the dream she apparently dreamt of specific events of the man's life. A retelling of a dream puts the reader on edge that what is presented may be fanciful. I think that does a disservice to MLK's life.

The events were presented straightforwardly. It is easy to understand. I am not a huige fan of the images, but there is nothing bad about them; they just didn't impress me.

The text didn't impress me with the style. There was just something overall about the book that felt "off" somehow.

I won't rush back to reread this one.
