really liked it
bookshelves: graphically-illustrated, memoirish, kidlit, libraries-are-great
Read in November, 2011

Really lovely memoir for kids (hooray! Do you know how frequently I get requests for autobiographies and picture book autobiographies? Do you know how few of them there are and how not-great a lot of existing ones are?). Part picture book, part scrapbook, part sketchbook/journal - it all makes for a wonderful mix that moved and engaged me far more than I expected. In fact, I really wish that it were longer - more a long the lines of a big fat graphic memoir.

It's also made me extremely interested in reading more of Say's picture books, since he's an author I've never really explored.
