Upbeat, soulful jazz greets listeners as narrator Sullivan Jones's warm, reassuring voice blends the lyrical rhymes and vibrant imagery in Beaty's encouraging story. Courageous, imaginative second grader Aaron Slater is an amazing artist who loves telling stories but struggles when he tries to read them. In this fifth installment of The Questioneers series, Jones makes the most of the brief production, creating a hopeful, engaging experience with strong characterizations, a bold delivery, and deliberate pacing. The recording includes author and illustrator notes that discuss real-life artist Aaron D. Slater, a key figure in the Harlem Renaissance, as well as dyslexia, and the power of illustration to enhance a story. K.S.B.
