Ashley Bryan here tells the story of how he became a writer and illustrator of children's books in alternating pages with a tour of his home and neighborhood on Little Cranberry Island, Maine. He has led an interesting life in several countries, and was also a Black soldier in World War II, serving at the beaches of Normandy on D-Day. I've never cared much for his artwork, but I do love the stained seaglass pictures he's made--I'd love to see those in person! He also talks about how his elementary school taught him to perform poetry, which is why he's so good at it. I like how this book was put together, giving you a picture of Bryan's past and present. Recommended, especially if you like his work.
