Narrator Ron Butler brings joy to this story about a boy who is inspired by the late Civil Rights hero John Lewis. The poetic account of 10-year-old Tybre Faw's eagerness to meet Congressman Lewis is threaded with stories of how the young Lewis was inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Butler's bright, crackling narration establishes the delicate balance between hope and gravity as the story lays out the struggles and violence Lewis faced. The production begins with the full story, including page-turn signals to accompany the picture book; then another reading without them, followed by historical backstory, a timeline of Lewis's life, and a reading of the poem "Invictus." Music and sound effects are included in all but the backstory, adding energy and context. S.T.C. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2022]
