"An appealing biography of Sundiata, credited as the founder of the Mali empire. . . . Wisniewski's characteristic artwork add to the drama of the tale and are consistent with the folkloric tone. The characters have personality and vitality, and the setting has a texture and richness that heightens climactic moments of the story. . . . All in all, another fine effort from a talented author/illustrator." -- School Library Journal, starred

"Passed down through oral tradition, this historical account has the drama and depth of a folktale. The illustrations-elaborate collages inspired by the artifacts and culture of the Malinke-create a series of dramatic images. The intricacy of the paper-cuts and the richness of the colors and patterns give the artwork visula as well as narrative strength. In an appended note, Wisniewski discusses the history and art of West Africa as well as his research and technique for creating the illustrations. A striking interpretation." --ALA Booklist, starred

"A splendid resource; a fascinating meld of biography and legend." --Kirkus Reviews, pointer
