Dumpling Days (A Pacy Lin Novel, 3) Paperback – March 19, 2019
Enhance your purchase
Pacy is back! The beloved heroine of The Year of the Dog and The Year of the Rat has returned in a brand new story. This summer, Pacy's family is going to Taiwan for an entire month to visit family and prepare for their grandmother's 60th birthday celebration. Pacy's parents have signed her up for a Chinese painting class, and at first she's excited. This is a new way to explore her art talent! But everything about the trip is harder than she thought it would be--she looks like everyone else but can't speak the language, she has trouble following the art teacher's instructions, and it's difficult to make friends in her class. At least the dumplings are delicious...
As the month passes by, Pacy eats chicken feet (by accident!), gets blessed by a fortune teller, searches for her true identity, and grows closer to those who matter most.

"Humorous and thoughtful, with serious issues approached with a light touch.... Readers new to the series will enjoy meeting Pacy, and fans will be satisfied as well."―School Library Journal
"Thoughtful and sometimes amusing.... While this engaging book broadens the series in a meaningful way, it also works well as a stand-alone title."―Booklist
"This third outing is as warmhearted as the first two. Deftly weaving together historical anecdotes and simple line illustrations, Lin once again touches the heart of growing up in a multicultural family."―Kirkus

People of all ages would like this book because it has adventure and excitement. I liked the part where they traveled to the Taipei where the they see their cousin and their friends and adventure in the night market. This book was not too long or too short. It was very realistic and everything could happen. This book mixes in real Taiwanese and Chinese culture while making it an interesting read that keeps the reader entranced in this addictive book. I’d give this book five stars overall.
I am a big fan of Grace Lin's works--both her books and illustrations. I've purchased many Grace Lin books for my young nieces, and they adore the books too. I actually also bought a copy of Dumpling Days for my 75-year-old Taiwanese mother!
Lin's writing is so down-to-earth and flowing, it is easy to read her stories and feel like you are listening to someone in the same room. I would call her writing, comfortable and pleasant. The illustrations provide a nice touch, giving the reader a glimpse into Pacy's world and point-of-view. Highly recommended.
