Kadir Nelson's beautiful, realistic, vivid human illustrations capture the period, the setting, the wonder and the magic of Big Jabe

Kadir Nelson's beautiful, realistic, vivid human illustrations capture the period, the setting, the wonder and the magic of Big Jabe. With his feats, Big Jabe also reminds one of Krishna as a boy. The powerful antislavery message could not have a better children's fiction spokesman than the giant-of-heart Big Jabe. Fiction, with its hyperboles and suspension of disbelief, often is truer than truth, and Big Jabe. rings with sincerity.

In the end, Jabe leaves as suddenly as he came, and is last seen striding away, towering over the trees. Like Virginia Hamilton's Drylongso (1999) and unlike John Henry, Big Jabe seems not just larger than life, but a force of nature, subtle, secret, untouchable-and that undercurrent of mystery gives his story a mythic power. The little girl who wanted to be big.

Jerdine Nolen is the beloved author of many award-winning books, including Big Jabe; Thunder Rose, a Coretta Scott King Illlustrator Honor Book; and Hewitt Anderson’s Great Big Life, a Bank Street Best Book of the Year, all illustrated by Kadir Nelson.

Nolan's narrative is folkloric, and Nelson's illustrations are realistic, creating Big Jabe is larger than life-he's almost a mythical creature, having been found in a river and causing all the fish to land in Addy's basket. As he grows older, he gains the strength of many men, can complete day-long tasks in just one morning, and begins to create an unrest for the plantation owners-and when the plantation owners begin to get angry, Jabe creates a solution that is as believable as it is not.

This is a folklore narrative about a toddler found in the lake. Big Jabe grew up almost overnight and worked hard to ease the burden on the slaves and make life better. Big Jabe took care of his friends and led them out of slavery. The big pear tree was the key to everything. Big Jabe has extremely detailed illustrations that show a life well lived. 4 stars

Big Jabe is the story of how a child found floating down the river becomes a hero and savior of his people during the time of slavery. Jabe is found by Addy as she is out fishing at the river for her master. When Addy shows kindness to him, he rewards her by giving her the biggest catch of fish she has ever had. Not only does Jabe help Addy, but within a season's time, the boy Jabe grows to be a full gtown man who can do the work of twenty. He assists all the slaves in doing their tasks and before long, the master's slaves suddenly begin to disappear. In this tall tale Nolen has weaved examples from Biblical stories and other legendary tall tales like Johnny Appleseed and John Henry. The bright watercolor paintings done by the illustrator enhance the story's beauty and brings all of the characters in Nolen's Big Jabe to life. Once again, Nolen has a winner on her hands!
