bookshelves: middle-grade, picture-books

Allen Say has combined words and pictures to tell the story of his young life in Japan and how he came to be the artist he is today. Using a mixture of photographs, art from his sensei, and pictures he drew from memory Say has given us a heartfelt story of a lonely and confused boy who found his passion early and was fortunate enough to also find a kind and sincere mentor to teach him his art. The power of this story for me came from the pictures and the words filled in the extra detail.
