I've seen quite a number of reviews about this book, and needless to say I am intrigued. While I know that Say and (Shaun) Tan have very distinctive artistic styles, I could see their similarities and how they draw from the richness of their cultural background and heritage to produce stunning masterpieces such as this one. And we already have it in our libraries here in Singapore! I just checked - it must have just arrived recently. Will definitely borrow it. Currently on-loan. I'm sure this would be a huge hit.

Thanks for this recommendation. I love using Allen Say's books with student-teachers and recommend Grandfather's Journey and Tea with Milk all the time. Great curriculum tie-ins.

Myra, Drawing from Memory is wonderful, and I was so surprised at some of Allen Say's story. I'm also a fan of his book Kamishibai Man.

Tammy, Travis at 100 Scope Notes mentioned that The Inn-Keeper's Apprentice covered some of the same ground. I definitely want to check that one out, too. And I love The Bicycle Man.

One of my favorites was The Bicycle Man, so I'll definitely have to see if I can find Drawing from Memory in our local library. These books can appeal to a wide age-range, even to adults.
