Peter Sis is the best illustrator i will veer know, his unique dot style really impresses me. Though his knew book may be a little hard on kids, and i highly recommend reading w/ parents.
The story is about the author and his brutal childhood on being the cold war kid, with beautiful montages filling up each page. Adults will also want to read this, not only because of its pictures, but because it is a war-type subject adults will be interested in.
A superb book.
