Publisher's Summary

Drawing from the rich store of Civil War reminiscences handed down in her family, acclaimed author Patricia Polacco tells the true story of a remarkable wartime friendship between a young white Union soldier, Say Curtis, and a young black Union soldier, Pinkus Aylee. They are captured by Confederate soldiers and sent to Andersonville Prison.

    Story
    "Another Polacco Classic"

    Somehow I did not expect it to end like that. My mother has always made a point of reading Patricia Polacco stories to us as kids and like many out there we have cried, laughed and smiled at her tales of growing up and the struggles that she faced. I admit this was an unexpected listen and one that I think people of all ages should remember to enjoy.

    Story
    "Powerful true story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This true story is beautifully told.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pink and Say?

    It made the Civil War more personal for my students.


    What does Melba Sibrel and Hal Hollings bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I only gave the reading 4 stars because I thought Hollings could have varied his voice more for the different characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The story was quite moving, even for my "tough" fifth-graders who usually don't want to share a lot of vulnerable feelings.

    "Great for dialect!"

    What I like about this audio is that it helps students understand the dialect of Pink and Moe Moe Bay especially.
