I and I Bob Marley

By Abby (the) Librarian

In striking verses and vibrant paintings, Tony Medina and Jesse Joshua Watson have brought the man to life for a new generation. . . . This is an extraordinary book - beautiful in many different ways. Medina’s poetry sounds like song itself. In the back of the book there is an explanation for each poem, giving some more information about Bob Marley or what was going on in the world at that point in time. Each poem is accompanied by Watson’s gorgeous artwork. The paintings and the poems really work together to evoke emotions in the reader. I and I Bob Marley is creative nonfiction at its best. I hope to see this one sprinkled liberally with awards. —Abby (the) Librarian
