I’ve never really liked the taste of dumplings
Reviewed in the United States on October 16, 2015
I’ve never really liked the taste of dumplings, but after reading Dumpling Days by Grace Lin, I may reconsider. In this book, three girls named Lissy, Pacy, and Ki-Ki, travel to Taiwan. Along the way, they mess up in their classes and in their religions. They accidentally eat fried chicken feet. Pacy has to deal with bullies teasing her that she doesn’t know how to speak Taiwanese or Chinese. But there is one thing that will always brighten up their day, dumplings!
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.
