Skinny as a beanpole and tall for his age, an awkward young boy learns that Abraham Lincoln was often called "gorilla" and "backward hick" by his peers. Yet along with big hands and big feet, Lincoln had the amazing gift to lead a nation through a troubled time. The poetic story by Louise Borden and magnificent paintings by Caldecott Honor recipient Ted Lewin introduce young children to a wonderful boy and a great president.
