Editorial Reviews

Review

"There is humor and charm in the intersection of languages and understandings. Harmony Becker's story resonates with humanity and deep wisdom. Himawari House is a tantalizing peek into the future of our global society." ― George Takei, author of New York Times-bestseller They Called Us Enemy

"Becker’s art is intricate and rich at times, quick and playful at others. The story will tug at your heartstrings and make you laugh. All told, “Himawari House” will comfort young readers who are imagining their lives ahead and trigger nostalgic joy in older readers looking back." ―
New York Times

"This emotionally and culturally rich YA story that puts the author's range of talents on full display...adventures rendered with a masterful hand and an impressive ear for dialogue." ―
Washington Post

"This work exemplifies what the graphic novel format can achieve. An unforgettable story of personal growth in an exquisitely rendered setting." ―
Kirkus, starred review

"
This lighthearted yet serious-minded journey of discovery will delight, educate, and challenge teens interested in language and cultural exploration." ―School Library Journal, starred review

"[Becker] makes her stupendous solo debut in what will prove to one of the best graphic titles of the year....Audiences can expect absolute delight." ―
Booklist, starred review

"...An immersive graphic novel that explores cross-cultural identity and the power of language to separate and to unite." ―
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

"In this stunningly layered graphic novel debut, Becker crafts a warmly actualized world in which the multiplicities of diasporic Asian identity are examined and held close." ―
Publisher's Weekly, starred review

"Both hilarious and tender situations abound as this insightful graphic novel explores, among other topics, how language can either separate or bring people together." ―Horn Book, starred review
