2008 Award
The Wall
( by Peter Sis, Farrar Straus $18 Score: ) A stunning autobiographical account of growing up behind the Iron Curtain. Told with drawings, journal entries and photographs, this oversized picturebook is not for the typical picture book crowd. Itís more like a graphic novel with not so many words. Young people who are studying that chapter in history will find an interesting view of the turmoil and longing to throw off the repression of the Cold War. This may be more of a book for adults than kids, but it opens a window to a past that many parents of today will recall.
