Winner Description: 
illustrated by Christopher Myers, written by Walter Dean Myers, and published by Scholastic, Inc.
Winner Blurb: 

Christopher Myers uses ink, gouache, and cut-paper collage to interpret his father's ode to Harlem. A kaleidoscope of words and images leads the reader on a musical journey filled with sass and swing.

"Myers has chosen the perfect media to depict the sights, sounds, and smells of Harlem. Fragments of newsprint, photographs, catalogs, and magazines form bodies imbued with life and emotion and scenes that pulse with the strong sense of place."
