There was no day that dumplings couldn't make better.

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
* "Read this aloud when studying China and Taiwan, when studying the many cultural heritages of America, or just for fun."--Library Media Connection, starred review
"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
