Kids will really enjoy this heavily illustrated memoir by author/illustrator Say, for the exotic location (Japan) and the idea that a boy would essentially live alone at the age of 12 - taking care of himself. This story is an excellent choice for the more sensitive or artistically inclined child from about 10 or 11 up to 15 or 16. I like the way Say kept his book child appropriate without denying his own anger and resentment of his father. I think kids will respond to the authenticity of this memoir.
