Description
(A Caldecott Honor Book) In this beautiful, highly personal tale of his childhood as a refugee in World War II, Caldecott Medalist Uri Shulevitz remembers how his father once came home from the bazaar, not with bread for his family, but with a map. It turns out to be food for the soul, flooding their cheerless room with color, and young Uli soon learns to escape their hovel in his imagination, visiting faraway places with exotic names. Shulevitz's book for readers 4 to 8 "packs an emotional punch that will resonate with older children and even adults. The watercolor and ink illustrations add further depth as Shulevitz switches from a monochrome palette to a chorus of colors spotlighting how the map stirred his imagination."Washington Post Book World
