The Big Box: Toni Morrison, illustrated by Giselle Poter. Hyperion Books.

My roommate suggested that I read this trilogy a couple of months ago and I read all three books in under a month, it is a great find and with the movie coming out shortly I recommend everyone read this before the movie comes out
