now, THAT'S what I'm Talking About --
This is a wonderful tribute to the artist as child. Christy Hale's illustrations and words:
"He walked watching shadows shift.
Light on stone revealed secret colors.
Water mirrored shapes above---
a kaleidoscope in motion."

This loving presentation for children is followed by a 3-page, detailed postscript that provides the authoritative context of his life. This includes a short but suitable segway into continuing his little known adolescence as a typical High School teenager for the four highly important years in LaPorte, Indiana. --Glenn Ralston

This book is a perfect balance of visual inventiveness and verbal simplicity. The illustrations are outstanding, using just enough texture and variety to make each page lively and subtle, without detracting from the very sensitively told story of a boy, his mother, and an unusual cultural challenge. There is plenty of information here, but it never feels ponderous or politically correct, simply a surprising story of life and its unexpected shaping.

Both in language and artwork EAST-WEST HOUSE is a truly beautiful, provocative book. EACH double page is a treasure, with memorable text and art that are so neatly integrated the book will hold up after many readings, and linger in the mind's eye long after that. A book to cherish.
