Read full description of the books:
This is the third Allen Say book I've read this year, and being the huge Japanophile that I am, it's safe to say that I am officially a fan. I found this book today misshelved in the Education and Reference book section of a dusty old charity shop.
Set on a mountainside village near Yokohama not long after World War II, this autobiographical story takes place on sportsday–an event where all the school children and their families gather at the village school for a day of games and prizes.
On this particular spring day, two American soldiers from a nearby base show up and give everyone the biggest surprise of all. What a great little book, and a steal for only a quarter. I hope to eventually read all of Say's children's books. His illustrations are wonderful, and there's so much substance to his stories.
