    Lyrical, breathtaking, splendid--words used to describe Allen Say"s Grandfather"s Journey when it was first published. At once deeply personal yet expressing universally held emotions, this tale of one man"s love for two countries and his constant desire to be in both places captured readers" attention and hearts. Fifteen years later, it remains as historically relevant and emotionally engaging as ever.
    And how can we forget inimitable Allen Say. Many of his books deal with migration and various emotions associated with it. In this book, Allen Say presents the conflict of the original home and the new home. Here is what Sheela has to say about this book - "Allen Say reveals the intense and poignant feelings of longing an immigrant heart brooks with its consuming affinity for the birthplace as well as the adopted homeland. Chronicling his grandfather's journey from Japan to America at the turn of the century, with breathtaking watercolor illustrations, Allen Say shares a beautiful dilemma in an elegant, compact, and moving way."
