How far can an apron, / a bowl, or a book / take one small Chinese girl / with a passion to cook? / From peach blossom Beijing, / to crisp Cambridge snow, / how far will her dumpling dreams / help Joyce Chen go?
Carrie Clickard's delectable rhymes tell the story of how Joyce Chen, a girl born in Communist China, immigrated to the United States and popularized Chinese cooking. Illustrator Katy Wu brings this inspiring story beautifully and deliciously to life.
"In chirpy couplets, Clickard follows Chen’s childhood infatuation with cooking, her later move to the U.S. with her husband and growing family, and her expanding culinary empire. Wu’s brightly colored digital artwork maintains a cheerful mood, even during moments of nervousness or uncertainty.... a detailed timeline fills in some context, along with other resources."
