Frederick Douglass: The Lion Who Wrote History

Written by Walter Dean Myers, Illustrated by Floyd Cooper

This beautifully written and illustrated story of the life of Frederick Douglass is inspiring and informative. It is told in a way easily understood by young readers and engaging for all readers. The muted illustrations add to the feel of the story. Additional features are a timeline of Douglass’s life, a bibliography, and text of the document officially freeing Frederick Douglass.
