What in the world
could you possibly see

at an old Gai See
just you and me
on a hot and steamy,
melt ice-creamy,
summery Sunday morning?
Experience the sights, smells, sounds, aromas and textures of a Chinese "street market" in this poetic book that makes discoveries in each season:  songbirds and noodles in the spring, dragon fruit and slippers in summer, outdoor eateries and incense in the fall, and hot tea and firecrackers in winter.

The enticing picture-book tour will elicit recognition from Chinese-American families and give others a chance to visit a gai see vicariously."
