Reviewer: Stacia Murphy, (Quarterly Black Review of Books)

"Young readers experience the animals and Hughes' message through beautiful and most colorful illustrations, which are especially precious and profound as they were created by children from the Harlem School of the Arts."

Reviewer: Veronica Chambers, (New York Times Book Review)

"Langston Hughes (1902-67) was able to turn sophisticated and complex ideas into very simple language. A lifelong fan of jazz and blues, Hughes shared with musicians the gift of flow. His words could ride above you, breeze by or lift you like Aladdin's magic carpet....This edition of 'The Sweet and Sour Animal Book' is especially charming because of the illustrations by students in the lower grades at the Harlem School of the Arts."
