The book features both close-ups of the mural as well as a panoramic view of all five panels, which are accompanied by the author's text, giving her perspective on history, tradition, and hope. It also includes a preface and afterword reflecting on these themes.\n</p><p>Author Hamanaka (b. 1949) is an artist who has both illustrated and written and illustrated numerous children's books. <i>The Journey</i> was her first book as an author. Most of her succeeding books tell stories of American ethnic groups and/or of Japan.\n</p><p>Reviewers uniformly praised Hamanaka's artwork and its presentation in the book. John Philbrook in <i>School Library Journal</i> calls the paintings \"beautiful, bold, and moving, covering the public facts yet incorporating a personal touch in a cameo of the artist's siblings,\" while <i>Kirkus Reviews</i> refers to it as \"a complex, elegantly orchestrated blend of realistic portraits, caricatures, and traditional symbols that recalls the social-protest art of the 30's.\" <i>Publishers Weekly</i> calls her \"illustrations of historical details, the symbols from Japanese culture and especially the unforgettable faces are brilliantly executed.\"<sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref1_1-0\"><a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref1-1\">[1]</a></sup> While most reviewer also praised the text, calling it \"prose of simple and unique power,\"  \"moving,\" and \"compelling,\" Roger Sutton in <i>The Bulletin for the Center for Children's Books</i> calls it \"deliberately didactic\" with text that \"is a relentless condemnation, unfortunately weakened by undocumented controversial statements, ... overstatement, ... and unexplained references....\" <i>Publishers Weekly</i> calls the text \"a confusing amalgam of history, art catalogue description and biography.\"<sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref2_2-0\"><a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref2-2\">[2]</a></sup>\n</p><p><i>School Library Journal</i> named <i>The Journey</i> as one of its best books of 1990 and it won a Jane Addams Children's Book Award in 1991 and an American Book Award in 1992.\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Brian_Niiya\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">Brian Niiya</a>, Densho</b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Niiya, Brian</div>\n<p>Might also like: <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Home_of_the_Brave_(book)\" title=\"Home of the Brave (book)\">Home of the Brave</a></i> by Allen Say; <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/So_Far_from_the_Sea_(book)\" title=\"So Far from the Sea (book)\">So Far from the Sea</a></i> by Eve Bunting; <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/A_Place_Where_Sunflowers_Grow_(book)\" title=\"A Place Where Sunflowers Grow (book)\">A Place Where Sunflowers Grow</a></i> by Amy Lee-Tai\n</p>\n<div class=\"section\" id=\"For_More_Information\"><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>American Book Award website: <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\"></a>.\n</p><p>Harada, Violet H. \"Breaking the Silence: Sharing the Japanese American Internment Experience with Adolescent Readers.\" <i>Journal of Adolescent &amp; Adult Literacy</i> 39.8 (May 1996): 630–37.\n</p><p>Inagawa, Machiko. \"Japanese American Experiences in Internment Camps during World War II as Represented by Children's and Adolescent Literature.\" Ph.D. dissertation, University of Arizona, 2007.\n</p><p>Kay E.
