Following in the footsteps of an enslaved person named Henry "Box," Brown is transferred from one master to another after his original master became terminally ill and is given to his current master's son, who invests in his tobacco factory. As the years passed, Henry met Nancy, who soon became his wife. As time passed, Henry's wife and children were sold to another master and taken away. To free himself, he decided to put himself in a box and mail himself to a place where enslaved people did not exist. ( )

This book is based on a true story about a man who grew up in slavery and one day gets the idea to escape to the North in a box. This book has amazing illustrations in it and tells a very impactful story. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about the underground railroad. This book would be especially useful to students who are currently learning about slavery in school. ( )

Nelson does a wonderful job telling Henry Brown’s heartbreaking story. After being first sold as a slave aways from his mother and family and then having his own wife and children sold, Henry Brown embarks on an amazing journey to freedom. Brown’s story is illustrated beautifully by Kadir Nelson. Nelson’s pictures add another emotional element to an already incredible story. ( )

Powerful life story of a slave. Written so elementary age students could be a part of this time. Still very heart wrenching. From a boy to adulthood in slavery and watches his family get sold off. Henry mails himself into a territory that is kind to slaves escaping torture. ( )

Levine (Freedom's Children) recounts the true story of Henry Brown, a slave who mailed himself to freedom. Thanks to Nelson's (Ellington Was Not a Street) penetrating portraits, readers will feel as if they can experience Henry's thoughts and feelings as he matures through unthinkable adversity. As a boy, separated from his mother, he goes to work in his new master's tobacco factory and eventually meets and marries another slave, with whom he has three children. In a heartwrenching scene depicted in a dramatically shaded pencil, watercolor and oil illustration, Henry watches as his family—suddenly sold in the slave market—disappears down the road. Henry then enlists the help of an abolitionist doctor and mails himself in a wooden crate "to a place where there are no slaves!" He travels by horse-drawn cart, steamboat and train before his box is delivered to the Philadelphia address of the doctor's friends on March 30, 1849. Alongside Henry's anguished thoughts en route, Nelson's clever cutaway images reveal the man in his cramped quarters (at times upside-down). A concluding note provides answers to questions that readers may wish had been integrated into the story line, such as where did Henry begin his journey? (Richmond, Va.); how long did it take? (27 hours). Readers never learn about Henry's life as a free man—or, perhaps unavoidably, whether he was ever reunited with his family. Still, these powerful illustrations will make readers feel as if they have gained insight into a resourceful man and his extraordinary story. Ages 4-8. (Jan.)

Gr 2–5—Inspired by an actual 1830s lithograph, this beautifully crafted picture book briefly relates the story of Henry "Box" Brown's daring escape from slavery. Torn from his mother as a child, and then forcibly separated from his wife and children as an adult, a heartsick and desperate Brown conspired with abolitionists and successfully traveled north to Philadelphia in a packing crate. His journey took just over one full day, during which he was often sideways or upside down in a wooden crate large enough to hold him, but small enough not to betray its contents. The story ends with a reimagining of the lithograph that inspired it, in which Henry Brown emerges from his unhappy confinement—in every sense of the word—and smiles upon his arrival in a comfortable Pennsylvania parlor. Particularly considering the broad scope of Levine's otherwise well-written story, some of the ancillary "facts" related in her text are unnecessarily dubious; reports vary, for instance, as to whether the man who sealed Henry into the crate was a doctor or a cobbler. And, while the text places Henry's arrival on March 30, other sources claim March 24 or 25. Nelson's illustrations, always powerful and nuanced, depict the evolution of a self-possessed child into a determined and fearless young man. While some of the specifics are unfortunately questionable, this book solidly conveys the generalities of Henry Brown's story.—Catherine Threadgill, Charleston County Public Library, SC
