Baba ("papa" in Chinese) recounts the colorful childhood tales of Yang's father, who grew up at a time of great political and social upheaval in China. Behind the protective walls of the House of Yang, Baba is immersed in a world of the legends and colorful characters of village life. Yang's beautiful watercolors accompany each story and create "an astonishing personal vision" (Kirkus Reviews, pointer). Preface by Amy Tan; illustrations.

Review:

"Baba" is "Papa" in Chinese, and Belle Yang's Baba, Joseph Yang, was born in Manchuria in 1928. Belle set out to preserve her father's memories of coming of age in Northern China through painting and writing. The result is this illustrated odyssey of the fourth of seven children in the House of Yang, a prominent Manchurian family, whose experiences of the Japanese occupation, the Russian onslaught upon northeastern China, and the ensuing Chinese civil war make for a spellbinding tale.
