"Caldecott Medalist Allen Say presents a stunning graphic novel chronicling his journey as an artist during WWII, when he apprenticed under Noro Shinpei, Japan's premier cartoonist. Drawing from memory is Allen Say's own story of his path to becoming the renowned artist he is today. Shunned by his father, who didn't understand his son's artistic leanings, Allen was embraced by Noro Shinpei, Japan's leading cartoonist and the man he came to love as his "spiritual father." As WWII raged, Allen was further inspired to consider questions of his own heritage and the motivations of those around him. He worked hard in rigorous drawing classes, studied, trained--and ultimately came to understand who he really is. Part memoir, part graphic novel, part narrative history, DRAWING FROM MEMORY presents a complex look at the real-life relationship between a mentor and his student. With watercolor paintings, original cartoons, vintage photographs, and maps, Allen Say has created a book that will inspire the artist in all of us"--… (mais)

This memoir, which is both narrative history and graphic novel, weaves to - gether original cartoons, maps, paint - ings, and photographs, to recount Al - len Say’s challenging path to becoming an artist in post-World War II Japan and the United States.

middlegrade biographical sketch--the illustrator describes and draws scenes from his teen years--going to school and living by himself at the age of 12, pursuing cartooning as a career, and later moving from Japan to America. ( )

RGG: Beautiful compelling memoir of an artist pursuing his dream from childhood. Text is simple, but not childish. Illustrations are explicative and beautiful. Reading Interest: 12-YA.

A boy likes art, but his dad does not approve of it. He goes off to school on his own and continues to do art anyway. One day, he receives a letter from his dad asking him if he would like to move to America. He moves to America to have a better life and leaves art behind. I think this story is better for students in upper elementary grades or older because they may have a better understanding of what is happening in the story. ( )

I'm not too crazy about the cover of Caldecott Medalist (in 1994, with an Honor book in 1988) Allen's Say's partial autobiography in graphic novel form, Drawing from Memory. It doesn't really invite one to explore the fabulous pictures and story inside. Say used watercolors, pen and ink, pencils, and photographs to tell the story of his unusual childhood, particularly his teen years in post-World War II Japan. At the age of 12, Say was living independently and apprenticed himself to master cartoonist Noro Shinpei. The book ends four years later, in the summer of 1953, when Say decides to take up his estranged father's offer and join his new family in the United States.

Say's life story after that point is also intriguing, and one would have to know it to appreciate the irony of a statement he makes on page 50, "I hated photography." Say also hated his father, made clear in the book with only one drawing that includes him - back turned, hands on hips. In contrast, the book is a tribute to Shinpei, who also served as a father figure to Say, and there is an extensive author's note at the end with many photographs of Shinpei and his family.

Say wrote an autobiographical novel in 1979, The Ink-Keeper's Apprentice, that covered much of the same material, but this book is probably more accessible. Its 63 pages and numerous illustrations, many in comic book format, combined with a reading level of about fourth grade, makes it appealing to reluctant readers, as the book would interest students up through high school. This book was named a 2012 Robert F. Sibert Informational Award Honor Book.
