Elvis Is King!

Elvis Presley--the King of Rock 'n' Roll, still beloved by millions of Americans--comes to vibrant, gyrating life in this extraordinary picture-book biography from an award-winning author and the winner of a New York Times Best Illustrated Book Award.
Here's the perfect book for anyone who wants to introduce rock 'n' roll and its king to the child in their lives. In single- page chapters with titles like The First Cheeseburger Ever Eaten by Elvis and Shazam! A Blond Boy Turns into a Black-Haired Teenager, readers can follow key moments in Presley's life, from his birth on the wrong side of the railroad tracks in the Deep South, to playing his first guitar in grade school, to being so nervous during a performance as a teenager that he starts shaking . . . and changes the world!
Jonah Winter and Red Nose Studio have created a tour-de-force that captures a boy's loneliness and longing, along with the energy and excitement, passion, and raw talent that was Elvis Presley.
Readers will want to pore over this thoroughly engaging volume. -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review
