Reviews

An Orbis Pictus Honor Book for Outstanding Nonfiction 2019

"A thought-provoking meditation on the power of forgiveness."--The New York Times Book Review

"Nobuo's story of reconciliation, not only for him, but for Japan and the U.S., is powerful and poignant....The story captures a side of World War II readers may not have seen before. A must-read story of a lesser-known World War II event and its aftermath."--Kirkus

"
Full-color spreads and vignettes match a clear narrative that pays tribute to a change of heart and the importance of cultural understanding."--Publishers Weekly

"
This quiet story is less about war than the toll it takes on those who fight, the possibility of reconciliation, and the value of understanding other cultures. The fluid, emotionally resonant ink-and-watercolor illustrations create period scenes effectively while capturing the tone of the text. A war story with a heartening conclusion."--Booklist

"Nobleman knows just the right tone to strike with this story, and he unfolds its events with a storyteller's flair."--The Horn Book Magazine
