Opinion

From Library Staff

A picture book biography presenting the many sides of Theodore Roosevelt, from sickly child to frontiersman, soldier, father, and president. All of them encompass his main role as a person of action... and a larger-than-life figure.

Rappaport keeps the text sparse and poetic, allowing C.F. Payne's beautiful illustrations to take precedence. Payne draws Roosevelt with a delicate blend of accuracy and caricature, which nails Teddy's larger-than-life persona.
