A delightful debut about two sisters with big dreams provides a charming introduction to the doljabi, a Korean first birthday tradition. Twig's first birthday is coming up, and her whole family — especially her older sister, Hazel — is eager to see what she will choose at her doljabi. Whatever item Twig chooses will tell her fortune: Will she pick a hammer and grow up to be a builder? Will she pick a lute and grow up to be a musician? Hazel is hoping that Twig will choose the yarn, just like she did when she was Twig's age.
When the big day arrives and Twig makes an unexpected choice, will Hazel be able to help figure out what the future might hold for her little sister? Sweet, serious Hazel and the adorable Twig are certain to win the hearts of readers, who will long to enter their cozy woodland world.
"From sending invitations and picking flowers to making dandelion kimchi, Hazel leads Twig into full party-planning mode for the special day.... When Twig’s big moment finally arrives, she surprises everyone with an unusual choice — a feather — and Hazel reveals why it’s perfect. Yu’s watercolor-and-ink compositions are delicate, imbued with a soft palette of varying shades of green, blue, and brown. Her sweet-faced characters are a joyful mix of gentleness and irrepressibility, a truly irresistible blend." — Publishers Weekly
