By Allen Say.
The Japanese American incarceration during World War II has been the subject of a flood of books, including a number of books aimed at the younger generations. Caldecott Medalist Allen Say has eloquently depicted this dark moment in history with Home of the Brave, which he credits the JANM exhibitions on the camp experience as inspiration. In this mythical journey through a haunting and familiar landscape, a man meets two children who are lost. He embarks on a mysterious personal journey as he tries to help them find their home. Hardbound: 32 pp.
