John Hendrix lives in St. Louis, Missouri, with his wife and two children, and teaches illustration at Washington University. He has won numerous awards for his drawings, and his illustrations have been featured in the New Yorker, Rolling Stone, and the New York Times. This is his first children’s book that he has both written and illustrated. His methods of fighting slavery have been debated over the last 150 years but his focus to end the barbaric practice of owning other human beings has never been questioned. I think this is a great book for discussion in the middle grades for all different levels of readers.

Writer and illustrator John Hendrix relates the life of controversial abolitionist John Brown via a picture-book biography for middle graders. He begins in 1840, when John and his family lived in Hudson, Ohio – a great center of the abolitionist cause. John made a point of treating blacks as equals and with respect, a radical choice for the time. His father also believed in the equality of all human beings, and both attributed these beliefs to their devotion to Christian ideals. John was inspired by Ecclesiastes 4:1: Behold the tears of such as were oppressed and they had no comforter, and.

A great deal of academic study has been published recently about John Brown. This is the first book for young readers to include these new attitudes and research. In the late 1850s, at a time when many men and women spoke out against slavery, few had the same impact as John Brown, the infamous white abolitionist who backed his beliefs with unstoppable action. His dedication to freeing the American slaves made him one of the most recognizable leaders in the liberation movement to end slavery. Told through engaging, thoughtful narration and bold, dynamic illustrations, John Brown: His Fight for Freedom is a fitting reminder that all men and women are created equal, and that some things are worth fighting for.

Amazing book. My daughter loves books about people who have fought back against injustices (Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, Ida B. Wells, Malala, Rachel Carson and numerous others) but this is maybe the best of the lot. In particular I love that it is able to teach kids how messy the fight for justice could be. Another huge plus is to see such a strong example of a white person who fought back so passionately against slavery, and give my own white children a model to look up to.
Wat!?
Great children's book that didn't shy away from the frustration and exasperation of the man who tried to give folks what they wanted and found out they weren't sure if freedom was all it was cracked up to be! I wish it had been made clear that it was a children's book, I may have wanted to go for the adult version but then after reading it, WOW! Maybe I can't handle the intense, adult version. Very well done to show Brown's zealous nature which he never felt an apology was needed. I would appreciate a notation of the number of pages which would have indicated that it was a children's book. Great rendition! Thanks.

Very innovative way to tell the story of John Brown. Very beautiful illustrations with creative use of typography. Text is very accurate and easy to read.

I give 4 out of 5 stars only because of the fact that this book doesn't include other amazing John Brown illustrations by John Hendrix. You can find them on his website and elsewhere online, and I was disappointed that they didn't make it into this book.

Sorry, can't get enough of Hendrix!

I got this book for the illustrations, which are wonderful, and was surprised to find the subject matter extremely interesting. It seems to be presented in an even-handed, and un-flinchingly truthy manner. Well done John Hendrix.

This was a wonderful biography on a controversial man of U.S. History. We read numerous children's books on him, and the others have all portrayed him as a crazy, murderous villain...that was touted as a hero by some Northerners. This provides the explanation as to why some would call him a hero. I loved that the author includes how John Brown believed the Bible and was trying to follow what he believed it teaches. This book is well researched and has gorgeous illustrations!
Thank you for this informative book. I read this to my American Renaissance class of 14 year olds to give them a foundation of information on John Brown. It was very helpful in explaining the history of the time. . I then showed them a short video on John Brown and followed with Henry David Thoreau's essay A Plea for Captain John Brown. Thoreau having met Brown spoke on his strong moral and principled nature. The teenagers followed the John Brown: His Fight for Freedom with great interest. The book also did a good job to help them better process the learning that followed. In addition, my eleven year also enjoyed the story. Great artwork too!
