Reviews

β˜… "Newbery Medalist Park presents a provocative collection of narrative poems inspired by sijo, a 14th-century Korean syllabic verse form.... Coupled with debut illustrator Sae-Heng's accessible grayscale sketches of the objects, often in situ, Park's subjects' mementos offer middle-grade readers much food for thought regarding what one values and how others can touch one's life.... Park's extended rumination has the power to bring us home."--Kirkus, STARRED review

β˜… "The class's camaraderie and caring spirit comes through clearly, poised to inspire thoughtful classroom discussion."--Publishers Weekly, STARRED review

β˜… "This is a combination of piquant premise and accessible, engaging text... that will invite both reluctant and enthusiastic literati to reconsider their possessions. It also cries out to be a classroom read or even readaloud."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, STARRED review
