My Man Blue (Picture Books) by Nikki Grimes

Damon & Blue Just us two Cruising up the avenue. With his night-and-day shades and a frame like a heavyweight boxing machine, it might seem like this guy would be someone to steer clear of....But thats not the way it is. Blue is the best friend a kid could ever have. Blue, who lost one boy to the streets-and is determined that this time will be different. And Damon, whose laugh reminds him of that child, and who, even though hes the man of the house, knows theres room for a guy like Blue in his life. To shoot hoops with, bounce thoughts off of, to share a laugh and a hot dog with all the works. And to know that at the end of the day theres someone standing steadfast in his corner. Someone Blue.Drawing on those friendships that have inspired her own extraordinary life, Nikki Grimes creates a poetically realistic tale of that joyous, complicated bond that draws us, one to another. To this Jerome Lagarrigue, in a truly wondrous picture book debut, adds powerful and sensitive paintings that capture the rich moods and atmospheres of the storys Harlem setting.
