They called him "White Trash" because he wore hand-me-down overalls and lived on the wrong side of the tracks near Shake Rag, but when his mama gets him a second-hand guitar, his life is forever changed. Reprint.

Lovely book, well presented and very easy for little children and big kids too :) to read and understand and learn a little about . Read and look, as a poverty-stricken and lonely little boy, through circumstance and the power to dream, grows up to change the world.

I orginally purchased this book for my Mom who is a real huge Elvis Presley fan. She was delighted to add this book to her evergrowing collection of Elvis thins. One day, while listening to an Elvis CD - my four year old started asking questions about Elvis. Talk about coincidence! We pulled out the book and Grandma read the story based on Elvis's beginnings. She had tears in her eyes remembering how Elvis came from nothing and rose to such awesomeness. My four year old loved the book too. A great gift for an Elvis fan or for reading and teaching a young child about his life. Nicely written for children to understand and beatuifully illustrated. A must have!!!

Got this as a holiday gift, and what a wonderful gift. Littlesugar did excellent research, but is not overly literal in every detail, which actually works well. Research following that which went into this book shows her story to be very, very accurate. Michael Rose's DVD documentary "Return To Tupelo" really transforms this "story" into the reality it was. Also, research done for a film by Charles "WSIR" Johnson, a musicologist and teacher, confirms most of the story, as presented in this great little book, which is not just for children.

The illustrations are terrific. The boy both does, and does not look like the child-Elvis, and that works for the book. And sometimes, we see things from "his" point of view.

Read and look, as a poverty-stricken and lonely little boy, through circumstance and the power to dream, grows up to change the world.

I have heard rumor that you can either be an Elvis fan or you can be a Beatles fan but you can’t possibly like both equally...I think I may be the exception to the rule. When I am in an Elvis mood (which is often) nothing else will do. Surprisingly, I know next to nothing about him personally, only his rhythmic often haunting voice. This book offers insight into his humble beginnings far removed from the glittery jumpsuits and lights of Vegas. I will most definitely check out further biographies about The King in the future.
