Robbinss debut introduces two mutually supportive U.S. civil rights activists, Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass. After Douglass drives his horse-drawn wagon down a snowy street, the subsequent spread of a room aglow in warm candlelight shows the two friends facing each other, teacups in hand. Short, parallel biographies of these 19th-century crusaders comprise most of the narrative; each read about rights in the United States. The right to live free. The right to vote. Some people had rights, while others had none. The husband-and-wife team of Qualls and Alko (The Case for Loving) uses paint, colored pencil, and collage to create symbolic illustrations with a folk-art feel. Flowery script is woven cleverly into the pages: steam from teacups, Anthonys ahead-of-her-time bloomers, and even sidewalks are filled with words and ideas endemic in their campaigns ( Right is of no gender... is of no color). An authors note and bibliography conclude a visually appealing primer on these civil rights reformers. Ages 48. Authors agent: Marietta Zacker, Nancy Gallt Literary Agency. Illustrators agent: Rebecca Sherman, Writers House. (Jan.)
