Experience Solar-Powered History!
There's something you should know about my dad. He's always inventing! When I asked him why Japanese Americans left their homes during World War Two, Dad decided to create the coolest invention ever. My brothers and I knew Dad's solar-powered machine would be amazing. We just had no idea that Dad was about to send us on a breathtaking adventure through history!
Why did so many Americans of Japanese ancestry have to leave the West Coast and go to internment camps? What happened to them once they got to the relocation centers? And why does our new friend Kimiko look so familiar that I’m just sure we’ve seen her somewhere before?
Join me, Lake Otis, and my brothers, Benson, and O'Malley, as we investigate these questions in What, No Sushi?: My Solar-Powered History at a Japanese-American Internment Camp, the first book in the My Solar-Powered History series!
What did you love best about What, No Sushi??
I really enjoyed the storyline, which reminded me of a couple of other series I've read for this age group.
What other book might you compare What, No Sushi? to and why?
I would compare it to the Time-Warp Trio series and the Magic Treehouse series, because all three series have young characters and deal with time travel, as well as all being historically accurate.
What three words best describe C.S. Perryess’s voice?
Descriptive, rapid, enthusiastic
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Not really, but I'm not entirely sure what is meant by the question.
