Product description


"Jerry Craft has 'crafted' a book of his comic strips chock full of real people and poignant messages. Accessible to everyone, it provides hours of discussion between those young and older, across ages, races, and other 'borders' both real and imagined. Right there along with an apple a day, try a comic strip a day! --Elise Klein

Teachers Against Prejudice

From the Inside Flap

Mixing down-home wit with traditional values, Jerry Craft presents a colorful reflection of African-American life that the whole family can enjoy. -- Angela Burt-Murray, Editor-In-Chief, Essence Magazine Craft’s quick wit, artistic skill and deft use of youthful language to bring out life lessons are sure to capture a young person’s interest. -- Pamela Toussaint, Author of Great Books For African American Children Jerry Craft is one of the finest cartoonists and professionals in the business. It is a pleasure to have him as part of the Chicken Soup Series. -- Lisa Nichols, The Secret and Coauthor of Chicken Soup for the African American Soul and Chicken Soup for the African American Woman’s Soul Mama’s Boyz is one of my favorite comic strips. Not only do I love to follow Mom and the Boyz as they work in their family bookstore, but I also appreciate how it supports writers and literacy. I even got to appear in a story. How cool is that?! -- Eric Jerome Dickey, NY Times and Essence Magazine best-selling author Kid reviews The new book is great! It is really funny and I like how you went month-by-month. The dancing Yusuf in the corner was also cool… and clever. Nice! -- Peter E., age 12, Westport, CT I really liked this book. You can learn a lot from it and it is easy to relate to the characters, which is good. That means you wrote this very well. Keep writing, you can go far. -- Dani B., age 10, Norwalk, CT I thought this book was extremely funny and enjoyable. The characters were funny and had cool personalities. It was very educational and the drawing part made me feel like drawing is fun and easy. I can’t wait to see the book in stores! -- Davie B., age 11, Norwalk, CT
