STARRED REVIEW Graphic novel panels and strong figures give the pages the air of a documentary as Phi celebrates an unexpected superhero: a father who endures a strange new culture, works to support his family, cherishes time with his son, and draws no attention to the sacrifices he's made. --Publishers Weekly

STARRED REVIEW Phi's bittersweet story of the resourcefulness of an immigrant family is lovingly illustrated in Bui's evocative artwork . . . This wistful, beautifully illustrated story will resonate not only with immigrant families but any family that has faced struggle. --Booklist

STARRED REVIEW "A fishing trip is not just a fishing trip in this poignant, semi-autobiographical tale . . . Together, Phi's gentle, melodic prose and Bui's evocative art, presented in brushy and vividly colored panels and double-page spreads, rise above the melancholy to tell a powerful, multilayered story about family, memory, and the costs of becoming a refugee. Spare and simple, a must-read for our times. --Kirkus Review
