Yoshiko Uchida, who lived in Berkeley, California, was the author of many children's books, as well as books for adults. She was the foremost Japanese-American woman writing about the Japanese-American experience. She said of these books: "I hope not only to reinforce the self-knowledge of young Asians, but to give all young people a sense of continuity with history and kinship with the past."Review:
