characters Grandfather's Journey ¸ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook When he was a young man Allen Say's grandfather left his home in Japan to explore the world He began his journey by crossing the Pacific Ocean on a steamship then wandered the deserts farmlands and cities of North America Allen Say lovingly tells the story of his own family's cross cultural history in elegant watercolour paintings that earned him a Caldecott Medal in 1993 This twentieth anniversary gift edition of the modern classic features downloadable audio and a new introduction by Allen S. Beautifully illustrated The images seem deeply personal with an inherent sense of dignity In this wonderful tribute to his grandfather Allen Say through his taut prose and pictures takes the reader on a journey to find the place called home As the old saying goes Home is where the heart is However what happens if your heart is drawn by two places and very different cultures the land of your birth and the land through which you journey and ultimately settleGrandfather s journeys between the unnamed mountain village in Japan and the seacoast of California evoke a sense of pilgrimage Yet the story suggests that with changing times and circumstances your feelings too can suddenly be changed In a moment of suspense it would appear that the restless tide of journeying has ended with grandfather s deathBut the family line continues and in words remniscent of his grandfather the writer states The funny thing is the moment I am in one country I am homesick for the otherYoung children may find it difficult to connect with the pictures many of them portraits of the Grandfather and his family The issue of being an immigrant is probably outside their experience and although this is a story about adventure it is a reflection upon the feelings of the grandfather rather than a suspense filled plot As an adult however I loved this story Although I have no personal experience of immigration the skilful combination of writing and images enables you to enter into and empathise with the characters on their restless journeys between homes Just like Allen the reader is able to say I think I knowgrandfather now
