Description - Year of the Jungle by James Proimos

New York Times best-selling author Suzanne Collins has created a deeply moving autobiographical picture book about a father who must go off to the war in Vietnam - and the daughter who stays behind.

When young Suzy's father leaves for Vietnam, she struggles to understand what this means for her and her family. What is the jungle like? Will her father be safe? When will he return? The months slip by, marked by the passing of the familiar holidays and the postcards that her father sends. With each one he feels more and more distant, until Suzy isn't sure she'd even recognize her father anymore.
