Booklist - 08/01/2022 The tale of Dolly Parton’s rise to fame is one of rags to riches, in which a resourceful and determined young girl is able to make it big. This biography engagingly recounts her childhood growing up in a one-room cabin as one of a dozen children. Dolly is inspired by her surroundings and hears music everywhere, from her mom snapping beans to geese flying overhead honking. She refurbishes a discarded mandolin and starts writing songs. Her first stage is the porch, where she plays for farm animals with a tin-can microphone. From there, she makes it to the local radio and then the Grand Ole Opry at just 13 years old. She keeps her dream of becoming a star through high-school graduation, after which she hops on a bus to Nashville. Readers will find a lot of charm here, and the illustrations bring one back to the period, into the rural Tennessee mountains and ultimately to the big city, where Dolly finally finds fame. - Copyright 2022 Booklist.
