Caldecott Honor winning author Uri Shulevitz discusses his new picture book When I Wore My Sailor Suit.
“A revealing autobiographical glimpse and an excellent insight into the power of children’s fantasies.” —Horn Book
“The child-centered solution to the boy’s problem proves, yet again, that this is the work of a wise and wonderful storyteller.” —School Library Journal
“Shulevitz’s lush transformations of reality into imaginary worlds are seamless and often breathtaking.” —Booklist
“In Shulevitz’s sketchy, intimate watercolors, close walls dissolve from patterned wallpaper to exotic locales and back behind the now-intrepid, now-anxious young explorer as indulgent adults occasionally look in.” —Kirkus Reviews
