Allen Say (born James Allen Koichi Moriwaki Seii in 1937; surname written Seii (清井) in Japanese) is an Asian American writer and illustrator. He is best known for Grandfather's Journey, a children's picture book detailing his grandfather's voyage from Japan to the United States and back again, which won the 1994 Caldecott Medal for illustration. This story is autobiographical and relates to Say's constant moving during his childhood.

El Chino is an inspirational and humorous portrayal of a Chinese-American's persistent effort to overcome stereotypes and fulfill his dreams. The successful blend of the American dream with an ethnic identity is always a timely lesson. The writing is concise with a tongue-in-cheek wit and the watercolor illustrations glow with luminous detail. This is a great book for any family who has an interest in changing preconceived notions. For Asian-Americans, especially adopted children from China, this book is a must-have addition to your home library.

User reviews
I am a reading specialist and tend to buy all of the Allan Say books. They are delicate stories written from his life with meaning and emotion. All of his books give you a glimpse into an unfamiliar culture. Love them.

We did an author study of Allen Say and this book was a great addition to my collection. The students loved reading it and I loved working with it.

A picture book biography of Billy Wong, the first matador of Chinese descent.

I really wish that there had been more information about Billy Wong in the back of the book. I want to know more! A fascinating picture book biography. I can safely say I've never read a biography of a matador before. The cover doesn't give a ton of clues as to what this is about, so I was quite surprised at where Billy's life went. May be a good choice if you're looking for a book about making predictions or Chinese Americans in sports.
Very simple yet poetic storytelling style by the author. It was interesting to see and read the story of one man's dream. Very childlike and reflective of the chinese minimalism in the use of language and illistrations.
I would recommend it not highly. It is not a cute fairy tale but it is a lovely simple book that perhaps could inspire young children to follow their dream no matter what their culture or race.
