Reviews

"A breathtaking, horrific, and ultimately redemptive work." -- Miami Herald "A profound and moving gift of graphic literature that has the look of a movie and reads like a poem." -- Jules Feiffer "Small ... employs angled shots and silent montages worthy of Alfred Hitchcock." -- Washington Post

This acclaimed memoir by an award--winning children's book illustrator delves into Small's difficult childhood in which his father subjected him to repeated X-rays. He eventually developed cancer and lost his voice following surgery. Unable to speak, Small is further isolated and alienated from his unhappy family. A deeply emotional and haunting story, with gorgeous illustrations. This book was nominated for the National Book Award in the youth category, but the subject matter is rather dark; appropriate for older teens and up. (LJ 7/09) (c) Copyright 2012.
