The author-illustrators "read everything they could find about Lincoln's life, his sayings and his ways, and also about the period in which he lived. The finished book with its richly glowing (five-color) lithographs is as deeply American as the little boy and the man it depicts - a perfect introduction to one of our most loved Americans."
