About the Book

An award-winning author and illustrator join forces in a stirring and emotional rich telling of Henry “Box” Brown’s famed escape from slavery—a feat he achieved by mailing himself to freedom. This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 6 to 8. It’s a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.

Honoring Henry’s determination and courage, Sibert Medal–winning author Sally M. Walker weaves a lyrical, moving story of the human spirit. And in nuanced illustrations, Sean Qualls captures the moments of strength, despair, and gratitude that highlight the remarkable story of a man determined to be free.

Critical Praise
