Reviews

Hoshino's watercolor-and-mixed-media illustrations are golden, topaz-touched. . . . A richly informative introduction to a subject little-addressed in works for children. -- Kirkus Reviews

Lee-Tai's tale, with its emphasis on the internees' dignity and feelings, offers the gentlest introduction to this tragic episode. -- School Library Journal

Hoshino's ink-and-watercolor spreads both provide historical information and convey the story's emotional weight--and do both with grace. -- Publishers WeeklyJane Addams Children's Book Award, Jane Addams Peace Association
