Review: Allen Say is hopefully a familiar name from elementary years due to his Caldecott-winning book Grandfather's Journey. In this, his autobiography, he shares not only the story of his early years, but photos and art as well. Liberal use of these artifacts move the reader along through brief blocks of text on each page. Say's is an interesting story, especially for budding artists, and his reconnection with his mentor inspired by this book shows the power of a good teacher.
