A spirited introduction to the great American for young readers and a glimpse of how any human can rise to surprising heights.
Matt Faulkner is a talented and clever picture-book maker whose dazzling ink and watercolor illustrations have graced dozens of well-loved picture books. On his inspiration for "A Taste of Colored Water, " he says, "When I was a boy it would've surprised me to learn that the word COLORED hung over a water fountain didn't mean that this was a magical place where fruit-flavored water flowed on demand." This story has grown out of his lifelong exploration of race and societal intolerance and the questions these institutions raise. His more recent work features several titles that focus on United States history, including "Thank You, Sarah" by Laurie Halse Anderson and "You're on Your Way, Teddy Roosevelt" by Judith St. George. He lives in Oakland, California, with his son.
