brilliantly written and designed, sophisticated and wise. I started American Born Chinese about five years into my comics career. Though at the time, it was really more of a vocation since I wasn't making any money at i. Up 'til then, I'd done a couple of stories with Asian-American protagonists, but I never dealt with the Asian-American experience head-on.

FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. The story of a Chinese-American kid in an all-white school is combined with the Chinese fable of the ""Monkey King"" and a send-up of racial stereotypes in this allegory of Chinese-American identity.

Very poignant book that really makes you think. I don't usually read comic styles of books, but this one just hooked me! Absolutely great message that deeply reaches Asian Americans, though could also have a deeper meaning for immigrants all kinds, especially immigrants of color moving to a white-majority country, or just persons of color in general. But I don't think you MUST be any of those to enjoy the book. I'm a white girl who has spent her whole life in America, and I just loved this book! I think this book is great for other white people too, as it will make you open your mind a bit to POC's, and potentially how what you say can be harmful, or understand how they feel. I do feel like besides the main character and his one friend, no one else was really fleshed out, with other just kind of staying as stereotypes (the Chinese Immigrant parents who were too strict, the white jock bullies), but for the shortness of the book I felt like that was fine. I would recommend this book for middle schoolers and up, MAYBE late elementary school, but I think the subtlety and the racial stereotypes would be best understood if the reader was a bit older. My boyfriend read it in middle school, and years later when I mentioned that I was reading it for a college course, he instantly perked up and insisted we keep the book after I was done with my class, and it has stayed in our library ever since. I feel like it is a simple to read, and an easily enjoyable classic.

Three seemingly unrelated tales interwoven until they all wrap up together at the end. You have the Monkey King who has trained and studied to be accepted into Heaven with the other Gods but is shut out because he is only a monkey. There is Danny, an all-American boy, who is continuously embarrassed every time his cousin Chen-Kee visits from China and behaves as the most horrific characterization of every horrible Chinese stereotype ever. And then there is Jin Wang, a new student in a new school, trying to fit in with his all-American classmates and horrified when a boy from Taiwan starts at the school and wants to be friends with him because what will that do to his chances with the girl he is falling for? All three main characters are dealing the fact that they are not happy in their own skin and looking for acceptance from outside is not working out so well for any of them.

My older son read this for his college comics class and recommended it to me. It has won several awards and it's easy to see why. The graphic novel format allows it to swing back and forth between the stories easily and conveys the thoughts much easier than I think the written word alone would have allowed for. The interweaving of the stories was well done although a bit heavy handed at the end on the moral but since it's such an important one, it's easy to forgive.

Delightful and cringe-y, refreshing and painful. These are just some of the various emotions I felt during the 45-60 minute read to finish. Weaving Sun Wukong's "Journey to the West" (or "Monkey King") along with Yang's fictional, but very relatable, Jin Wang, Yang was able to link some of Asian Americans' hilarious yet embarrassing insecurities with epic (as in the literary genre) nobility. The racism Asians in America face are much more subtle and mocking in tone, but hurtful nonetheless. Microaggressions ramp us up against corners in silence. Yet, the significant overlaps between the Monkey King's life and Jin Wang's impress an empowering and goofy sense of dignity: never forget who you are. Who knew transformers could be such a powerful illustration?

Favorite quote: "I was forbidden to date until I had at least a Master's degree" (163). Spent a good 30 second laughing a hearty laugh.

This is an excellent and insightful look into what American born Chinese face in trying to fit in with the rest of American society. The third of Gene Luen Yang 's graphic novels that I've read, this one is a combination of three tales that at first don't seem to relate to each other, but in the end come together to form a great ending.

One character embodies all the stereotypical racial ideas that many Westerners had and still have about Chinese and other Asians. This is a great middle school-age book that is so well-written, illustrated and colorful.

American Born Chinese has won a list of awards and it deserves every one of them.
