I was really excited for this one because we are long-time Bob Marley fans. Unfortunately we are really disappointed with this book. It doesn’t use the original lyrics, and the words/lyrics it does use are not an improvement. This is very awkward to read and feels like a Marley child cashing in on Dad’s genius and fame with a half-effort at a children’s book.
All of the above being said, the illustrations by Brantley-Newton are amazing and deserve all the positive-credit for this book. Unfortunately the illustrations aren’t enough to keep this one on the shelf.
