Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A picture book masterpiece from Caldecott medal winner Allen Say now available in paperback

Lyrical, breathtaking, splendid--words used to describe Allen Say's Grandfather's Journey when it was first published. At once deeply personal yet expressing universally held emotions, this tale of one man's love for two countries and his constant desire to be in both places captured readers' attention and hearts. Fifteen years later, it remains as historically relevant and emotionally engaging as ever.

Synopsis:

Through compelling reminiscences of his grandfather's life in America and Japan, Caldecott Medalist Allen Say gives us a poignant account of his family's unique cross-cultural experience. Illustrated with memorable full-color paintings, this is Say's most personal and remarkable picture yet of the bridging of the two cultures. Full color. 1994 Caldecott Medal.
