John Henry, Hammerin' Hero: The Graphic Novel


Illustrated by Nelson Evergreen

Born with a hammer in his hand, John Henry was destined to become a steel-driving legend. As a young man, he makes his mark on the American railroads, whistling while he works. But one day, a shady salesman comes to the railroad camp, claiming that his hammering machine is superior to any railroad worker. John Henry steps up to challenge the man's machine, hoping to save the jobs of thousands of railroad workers. But will John Henry be able to prove that a machine can't do what a man can?

Reviews

Library Media Connection, "Connecting Comics to Curriculum" - Karen Gavigan and Mindy Thompson

"These graphic novels cover African American history topics that support the CCSS, which state that college and career-ready sutents should have ample opportunities to "understand other perspectives and cultures."" - Library Media Connection, "Connecting Comics to Curriculum"

Book Links, "Graphic Novels as Read-Alouds" (Reid-Aloud Alert) - Rob Reid

"...Who could dig a tunnel inside a mountain faster - the salesman’s team-powered drill or John and his hammer? John won, but his “victorious heart had given out.” He was buried “near the site of his greatest feat” and remembered for having muscles as strong as iron and a heart of gold." - Book Links, "Graphic Novels as Read-Alouds" (Reid-Aloud Alert)
