Muddy: The Story of Blues Legend Muddy Waters-NY Time Book Review, NYPL Best Illustrated Childrens' Books 2017

Muddy: The Story of Blues Legend Muddy Waters by Michael Mahin-Muddy Waters was never good at doing what he was told. Grandma Della said the blues wouldn't put food on the table, Muddy didn't listen. When record producers told him no one wanted to listen to a country boy playing country blues, Muddy ignored them too. This tenacious streak carried Muddy from the hardscrabble fields of Mississippi to the smoky juke joints of Chicago and to a recording studio where a landmark record was made.
