The Wall: Growing Up Behind the Iron Curtain

By Sis, Peter

New York: Farrar Straus Giroux, 2007. Hardcover. First edition, first printing. Fine hardcover in a Fine dust jacket, protected by a clear mylar cover. BOOKS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY, WRAPPED IN PADDING, IN A BOX. "Through annotated illustrations, journals, maps, and dreamscapes, Peter Sis shows what life was like for a child who loved to draw, proudly wore the red scarf of a Young Pioneer, stood guard at the giant statue of Stalin, and believed whatever he was told to believe. Then came the Prague Spring of 1968, and for a teenager who wanted to see the world and meet the Beatles, this was a magical time. It was short-lived, however, brought to a sudden and brutal end by the Soviet-led invasion. But this brief flowering had provided a glimpse of new possibilities--creativity could be discouraged but not easily killed." "The Wall is a 2007 New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year, a New York Times best seller, a 2008 Caldecott Honor Book, a 2008 Bank Street Best Children's Book of the Year, the winner of the 2008 Boston Globe Horn Book Award for Nonfiction, and a nominee for the 2008 Eisner Award for Best Publication for Kids." Written and illustrated by Peter Sis. Unpaginated [56 pages]; color and b&w illustrations throughout; 9.25 x 12.25 inches. LAID-IN are two short reviews of the book.

The wagons--with their rococo embellishments and glorious gallimaufry of visual factoids, trivia, hoopla, and American hyperbole--command attention and invite endless, wondering reexamination. A page of notes at the back offers further information that encourages children to create their own 'train of states.'" Written and illustrated by Peter Sis.
