Henry's Freedom Box, by Ellen Levine and Kadir Nelson - not a review

Now, I all but worship the ground my fellow Pratt Institute alum Kadir Nelson walks on - everything the man puts out there, from Please, Puppy, Please to Ellington Was Not a Street, feels strong and real, three-dimensional, direct, and friendly. Plus his colors are lovely. He deserves all the awards and fame and accolades that have been heaped upon him.

But every time I pass by Henry's Freedom Box face-out on the shelf, I think those little birdies are flying in one ear and out the other.

Well, great. I had never even noticed those little birdies before, but now and forever they will be flying right through his brain.... ;-)
