Read full description of the books:



Moving memoir for children 8 to adult. I have read much about the CIM and spent time in China so I loved especially McMullan's scenes from pre WWII China. A page of text is mirrored by a full page of exquisite water color illustration and this layout choice weaves a fine marriage of text and art. The story begins in a privileged white household in the China of the 1930's. McMullan has to leave with his mother after the Japanese invade. He spends time in different schools in his mother's native Canada, a boarding school in India, and faces, as the war is ending, the death of his father who served with the British Army in China.

The authorial voice is honest, gentle, not manipulative but pulsing with the perceptions and pain of a young un-athletic white boy and his journey with and without his mother and her addictions across Northern America and Asia during the war. The artwork zooms in on the young child's details and each panel needs time to digest. Each scene leaves a vivid impact with the reader.

The book draws on a focused and fascinating moment in this unusual childhood and is the sort of book I would buy often as a gift or keep on my coffee table for guests to browse.
