Journey Home, The When Mai's mother decides to travel to Vietnam in search of her birth family, her daughter accompanies her and tells the story of their journey in her own words. Their contrasting emotional reactions to the landscape and people of their ancestral country are conveyed with great sensitivity, and the full-page paintings capture expressions and atmospheres in poignant and telling images. A picture book, but one with a relatively complex and detailed text.
