Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jerry Dixon

Children Ages 8+ • 10 min. • Unabridged • © 2007

When a picture book wins a Caldecott Honor Medal, it takes a skilled narrator to capture the story’s words AND its illustrations. Jerry Dixon’s gentle, intimate presentation welcomes the listener to Henry "Box" Brown's life. One can only be impressed by Henry’s character as he experiences the gruesome existence of a slave during the mid-1800s. Nothing can ameliorate his pain as his family is torn apart, and nothing can deter him from inflicting injury to himself in order to initiate his unusual plan. A.R.
