Reviews:
"This skillfully edited program captures the beauty of Say's lovely, tranquil watercolors...Wong reads with sensitivity and grace, conveying both the wonderment of the man's exciting journey and his intense love of two countries...exquisite music score, (is) a subtle mix of Eastern and Western influences." - Booklist
"Allen Say's beautifully written Caldecott Award-winning memoir of his grandfather's life is treated with care in this expressive production...original music begins with a Japanese flavor, but adopts a slightly more Western tone as the story progresses, beautifully complementing the text." - School LIbrary Journal
"Comprised of a series of beautiful portraits...with a characteristically lovely soundtrack...Recommended." - ***, Video Librarian
