Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Thoughtful and sometimes amusing, this episodic journey narrative captures Pacy’s emotions and reflections, whether they involve an unfamiliar (and literally alarming) high-tech toilet or her newfound understanding of what it means to be both American and Taiwanese. The first-person narrative pauses at intervals to include stories that Pacy’s relatives share with her, both traditional tales and memorable accounts of family members dealing with superstition, political oppression, and loss. While this engaging book broadens the series in a meaningful way, it also works well as a stand-alone title.” Booklist
“Narrator Lin brings just the right amount of warmth and angst…Pacy’s voice is childlike and inquisitive, and occasionally she sounds cranky until she begins feeling more comfortable in her parents’ homeland…Pacy’s concern about where she belongs, both in terms of country and culture, is resolved in this engaging story that is suggested for both series readers and new listeners.” School Library Journal
“A charming book about family and searching for identity…Dumpling Days is sweet, fun, and honest; its vivid descriptions and amusing anecdotes will whet reader’s appetites for dumplings.” VOYA
“As warmhearted as the first two…Lin once again touches the heart of growing up in a multicultural family.” Kirkus Reviews
