Memories of Childhood

Michael Foreman. Anova Books, $35 (191pp) ISBN 978-1-86205-408-0

With a limited print run of 5,000 copies, signed and numbered by the author, Michael Foreman's Memories of Childhood combines his two autobiographical tales. Of the first, War Boy, winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal, PW wrote, ""A book to be savored equally by those who share Foreman's memories and those experiencing the coming-of-age discoveries he illuminates with generosity and humor."" Its sequel is After the War Was Over. Delicate drawings and watercolors create a you-are-there experience of WWII and its aftermath. ( Mar.)
