Great Publishers Weekly Review for Midnight Teacher, Illus. by London Ladd

20 Dec 2017

Publishers Weekly shared a review of upcoming biographical picture book Midnight Teacher: Lilly Ann Granderson and Her Secret School. Written by Janet Halfmann and illustrated by London Ladd, Midnight Teacher recounts the story of a woman born into slavery whose determination and bravery led to the literacy of countless slaves. Publishers Weekly praises London Ladd’s “rich, naturalistic” images and remarks on the “painful but uplifting” nature of the inspirational narrative.
