Gorgeous illustrations, believable dialogue and realistic characters. This is a fabulous story about friendship and growing up (in a sense). Pink and Say have different opinions on being soldiers in the Union Army and Polacco allow both to wrestle with their emotions in a an honest way. She does a great job of presenting likable, complex characters; though the book is short, I felt like I knew each character and his/her motivations. This is ultimately a sad, but important story and highly recommended. (And though it is often cataloged as a children's book, it should be placed in the Juvenile section; it's definitely too complex/dark a story for very young kids.) ( )

Historical Fiction

This book is about Pink (an African American soldier) and Say (a white soldier) who become unlikely friends during the Civil War. The two Union soldiers were on a battlefield when Say is wounded. Pink pulls him to safety in his mother's home where they spend more time learning about each other and becoming friends.

I absolutely love Patricia Polacco and her ability to create stories that are simply incredible and she did no less with this one. "Pink and Say" is a great book about overcoming obstacles with your friend and building a strong relationship with unlikely allies.

Historical fiction- The Civil War

This book is about 2 men fighting in the war. When one was injured, a black man found him and took him back to his house. Along with much help from his mother, they nursed him back to health. The young white soldier was scared and did not want to go back to the war. Pinkus told him that it was his war and therefore he had to and would appreciate it if he would come with. One day, soldiers came and their mom hid them in the cellar. They waited for her to come back and tell them it was clear, but she never returned. When they decided to get out, they found his mom shot dead in the front yard. They both felt so bad for putting her in danger of the war. As they went back, they were captured and taken prisoner of war. They were taken to an overpopulated Confederate camp.

I thought this was a really good book because it shows the awful parts of war. It also shows that despite all that there is human kindness out there when Pink and his mom nurse Say back to health.

Pink and Say is based on a true story of two child soldiers in the Union army. Sheldon (Say) is injured and laid on the ground for days. Pinkus (Pink) found him, gave him water, and carried him to his house. Pink's mother nursed Say back to health. Race is a part of this story because Say is white and Pink is black. After Say heals, he doesn't want to go back into the way and possibly die but Pink is eager to get back to the war. Pink says, "It's our fight. If we don't fight, who will?" As they were getting ready to leave, they hear marauders outside so they hide in the cellar. The Confederate soldiers shoot Pink's mother and she dies. After burying her, they start walking to join their troop but run into some Confederate soldiers and are taken to a Confederate camp. Pink was hung and Say returned home and eventually married and started a family.

Hands and gestures have always been important in Polacco's work. Here they are at the center of a picture book based on a true incident in the author's own family history. It's a story of interracial friendship during the Civil War between two 15-year-old Union soldiers. Say, who is white and poor, tells how he is rescued by Pinkus (Pink), who carries the wounded Say back to the Georgia home where Pink's black family were slaves. In a kind of idyllic interlude, Pink and his mother nurse Say back to health, and Pink teaches his friend to read; but before they can leave, marauders kill Pink's mother and drag the boys to Andersonville prison. Pink is hanged, but Say survives to tell the story and pass it on across generations. The figure of Pink's mother borders on the sentimental, but the boys' relationship is beautifully drawn. Throughout the story there are heartbreaking images of people torn from a loving embrace. Pictures on the title and copyright pages show the parallel partings as each boy leaves his family to go to war. At the end, when the friends are wrenched apart in prison, the widening space between their outstretched hands expresses all the sorrow of the war. Then, in a powerful double-page spread, they are able to clasp hands for a moment, and their union is like a rope. Say once shook Lincoln's hand, just as Say held Pink's hand, and Say tells his children, who tell theirs, that they have touched the hand that touched the hand . . .

Gr 4 UpSay, 15, had never seen a black person up close until Pink, also a young Union soldier, saves his life. During his brief stay in Pink's home, the wounded boy comes to understand his friend's unconquerable vision of freedom. A memorable family reminiscence with evocative paintings. (Oct. 1994)
