Product description

From the Back Cover

From a log cabin in Kentucky to the White House, the life of Abraham Lincoln is an inspiring saga of courage and dedication. Simple words and timeless pictures weave the important threads of Lincoln's life into a colorful folk tapestry that illustrates a true American pioneer of justice.

"Zeldis's oversized gouache paintings give this picture-book biography a folkloric look that suits its larger-than-life subject. Kunhardt's brief text avoids any fictionalization and presents the important events in Lincoln's youth and many careers in a straightforward, objective fashion.... A praiseworthy effort."School Library Journal.

"Hits the high spots and finds time for memorable tidbits... Consider multiple copies."Booklist (starred review).

About the Author

Malcah Zeldis, illustrator of Martin Luther King, lives in New York City.

In Her Own Words...

"For many years I secretly wanted to paint and become an artist, but I was afraid to study art because I felt I had no talent. It was only when my children were grown and away from the house and I found myself with time on my hands that I dared to begin to paint without expecting anyone else to like or approve of what I was doing. When I finally showed my work to art critics and connoisseurs, I was amazed by how eagerly it was accepted.

"After this initial acceptance I began to paint furiously, trying to make up for the lost time when I had been inhibited and unable to work. The images were flowing out of me with incredible speed. Now, some twenty-three years later, my work is in seventeen museum collections, including the Smithsonian, where one painting is on permanent display.

"Again to my amazement, these last few years my work has taken a new turn as I have been illustrating books for children. I am deeply grateful for this new means of expression I have found. It has enriched and deepened my experience, and I look forward to the continuation of my creative life."
