Starred reviews in Publishers Weekly and School Library Journal

"In its excellence in representing political upheaval through the eyes of a child, this book belongs next to Peter Sis's The Wall ; in its directness, next to the work of Allen Say. The indefatigable energy of Chen's brush, though, is all his own."-- Publishers Weekly
