'Elijah of Buxton' by Christopher Paul Curtis

Humorous, powerful, masterful escaped-slave tale.

Age: 9+

What Parents Should Know: Parents need to know that, while this isn't as graphic as some books about slavery, it has its share of horrors, including beating deaths (only the aftermath described), lynching, scars from beatings and brandings, and adults and children shackled, starved, and deprived of water. —Common Sense Media (Photo: Scholastic Inc.)
