    1. This is a delightful introduction to a musical icon A picture book about how Bob Dylan s musical persona was formed and informed by his times and by the singers who were going to become his peers what a grand idea And how lovingly, reverentially executed here by Golio The illustrations are splendid and evocative, but I m afraid ol Bob was never quite as handsome as herein depicted by Burckhardt Highly recommended for people who like music, and essential for folkies and their children s children.

    2. Reviewed at teachmentortexts 2012 I grew up listening to Bob Dylan His music was a major part of the soundtrack of my life and because of that he still has a special place in my heart During my bachelor degree I wrote a paper analyzing the influence that Walt Whitman had on Woody Guthrie thus influencing Bob Dylan this picture book brought me right back to that research and all of the amazing poetry and music that Dylan and Guthrie write wrote This picture book shares Bob s childhood as a journe [...]

    3. With its acrylic and oil illustrations that reveal the innocence of youth as well as the lines of hardship traced on the face of his mentor Woody Guthrie, this wonderful book focuses on the many influences on the life and music of Bob Dylan The author pays little attention to his early growing up years in Minnesota instead, it highlights the adolescent s gravitation to the music of Hank Williams, Muddy Waters, and Lead Belly, and the poems of Dylan Thomas The author doesn t stint in acknowledgin [...]

    4. Very good book, great story and illustrations Anyone who is a fan of either of these legends should read it Kudos gentlemen

    5. Gary Golio s last picture book was the stunning award winning collaboration with Javaka Steptoe, Jimi Sounds Like a Rainbow, about rock legend Jimi Hendrix In his newest release, Golio turns to another 20th century musical legend, Bob Dylan, and fans of his early work will not be disappointed.Much like Golio s book about Hendrix, this volume does not attempt to be a traditional biography and tell the entire story of Dylan s life Instead, he concentrates on Dylan s youth in Minnesota, when he was [...]

    6. This is presented as Bob Dylan seeing Woody Guthrie as a sort of hero for emulation, and the effect that had on his growth That s basically true, or anyway that s basically how Bob himself presents the situation The oddity is that Bob Dylan himself has always resisted refused to be anyone s hero While he has been called the voice of a generation, he always resisted that label indeed, any label Don t follow leaders he says in Subterranean Homesick Blues I have appreciated him and similarly Neil Y [...]

    7. This picture book caught my eye at the library It gives a brief overview of Bob Dylan s early life as much as is known he apparently likes to make up things about his life and chronicles how he went to New York City to visit Woody Guthrie, who at the time was dying of Huntington s disease In meeting Guthrie, Dylan gained entry into Folk circles and started his long and illustrious career Afterword and resources are included.Strengths Nice overview of Dylan s life The pictures are interesting Wou [...]

    8. Wonderful drawings in an Americana style on paper mounted on board, giving the paintings of acrylics and oils the periodic texture of wood The book brings us along on Bob Dylan s journey as a boy and adolescent, tracing his growth as a musician and poet, whose course was further energized by the first the influence of and then meeting with Woody Guthrie Quotes from Dylan give further immediacy to the life of this 20th century figure.

    9. Gary Golio s picture book biography of Jimi Hendrix, Jimi Sounds Like a Rainbow, was one of my favorite picture books last year In this book, Golio returns to another 20th Century musical icon, Bob Dylan Determined to become a musician with little support from his family and friends, Dylan struck out on his own, eventually finding his way to New York, where he met Woody Guthrie, his hero.

    10. Very inspiring story, appealing to children and adults alike Short but sweet introduction to anyone not familiar with this musician Author notes that in some cases story might be not be entirely factual and may be rather idealistic The illustrations expertly convey this idealism, accompanying the text with rolling hills and rosy sunsets.

    11. While an interesting view of Bob Dylan s life and his friendship with Woody Guthre, I really doubt that this book will appeal to kids Most will not have even heard of either Bob or Woody I do appreciate the mention of Dylan s social activism in the afterward but I don t think it is enough to warrant adding it to the collection.

    12. While I am a huge Bob Dylan fan, and Woodie Guthrie, I was skeptical when I first saw this book, wondering where the author would take his readers The result is on a heart warming journey of the roots of Bob Dylan including how he chose his stage name, his passion for folk music, and his admiration for Guthrie A great read for fans of all ages.

    13. Beautiful illustrated story of Bob Dylan s youth.nnings of his climb to fame I foresee many children who come across this book would be inspired to live their dream Dylan fans would certainly treasure this and share with their children.

    14. Wonderful story Clear and specific language that developed Bob Dylan as a musician Illustrations and design fit the story well.

    15. My review of this book can be found in the September Issue of The Sacramento SanFrancisco Book Review.

    16. Simply told, but without glossing over the tension in his early life Makes a great pairing with the picture book THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND with paintings by Kathy Jakobsen.

    17. Great read, wish it had lyrics, enabling younger readers to get a sense of folk music Backmatter was great, would work well for a school project.

    18. This book is a true inspiration for any child or adult that wants to be a musician It tells the story of the young Bob Dylanjust wish it came with a CD very colorful pictures as well

    19. I really liked this book They captured Dylan s start and his admiration for Woody Guthrie really well.I loved the quotes scattered throughout the pages as well Good read.
