Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I enjoyed the suspense that was created in this story. Not many picture books create a true suspense in their readers and I think this one acheived this. I liked the historical note at the end which told of the future paths of these escaped slaves.This book could be used in a library program that celebrated Black History Month and the stuggles that slaves took to gain freedom.
