Emmanuel's Dream: The True Story of Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah : Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah's inspiring true story - which was turned into a film, Emmanuel's Gift, narrated by Oprah Winfrey - is nothing short of remarkable.

Born in Ghana, West Africa, with one deformed leg, he was dismissed by most people - but not by his mother, who taught him to reach for his dreams. As a boy, Emmanuel hopped to school more than two miles each way, learned to play soccer, left home at age thirteen to provide for his family, and, eventually, became a cyclist. He rode an astonishing four hundred miles across Ghana in 2001, spreading his powerful message: disability is not inability. Today, Emmanuel continues to work on behalf of the disabled.

Thompson's lyrical prose and Qualls's bold collage illustrations offer a powerful celebration of triumphing over adversity.
