This is the first novel by Shulevitz, who is one of America's most celebrated picture book artists and theorists. It's a memoir of his childhood, and tracks his family's movements as they flee Poland just before Nazi occupation, then travel through several refugee camps in the Soviet Union before eventually moving to Paris after the Holocaust is over. It's intensely personal, and is kept from being too heavy because the refugee stories are balanced with the narrative of Shulevitz growing into himself as an artist and storyteller. ~ Reviewed by Nadja Tiktinsky
