Grandfather's Journey

by Allen Say

"A personal history of three generations of the author's family that points out the emotions that are common to the immigrant experience."  (School Library Journal)

"The immigrant experience has rarely been so poignantly evoked as it is in this direct, lyrical narrative that is able to stir emotions through the sheer simplicity of its telling." (Horn Book, starred)

Lyrical, breathtaking, splendid--words used to describe Allen Say’s Grandfather’s Journey when it was first published. At once deeply personal yet expressing universally held emotions, this tale of one man’s love for two countries and his constant desire to be in both places captured readers’ attention and hearts. Winner of the 1994 Caldecott Medal, it remains as historically relevant and emotionally engaging as ever.
