Winner Description: 
written by Laurie Ann Thompson illustrated by Sean Qualls and published by Schwartz & Wade Books, an imprint of Random House Children’s Books, a division of Random House LLC, a Penguin Random House Company
Winner Blurb: 

Against almost insurmountable odds, Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah, born with only one strong leg, sets out to ride a bike 400 miles across Ghana to raise awareness for the disabled. With the message of “being disabled does not mean unable,” the stunning mixed media art supports this uplifting and inspiring story.

“Thompson and Qualls biographical picture book proves that ‘One leg is enough to do great things -- and one person is enough to change the world,’” said Award Chair Alyson Beecher.
