KIRKUS REVIEW

Soft black and brown sketches of Jimmy and his inner city world provide a quiet, suggestive accompaniment to Myers' pleasingly fluent prose-poem about the little boy's dreams of flying like a bird. Despite occasionally conspicuous attempts to be poetic, an affecting balance of wishes and reality, well suited to reading aloud.
