Book Reviews - Noodle Magic
KIRKUS REVIEW: "In this slurp-worthy picture book, Mei loves to watch Grandpa Tu create noodles spun out of dough, magic and plenty of heart. Playing with your food has never been quite so enticing."
LIBRARY MEDIA CONNECTION: "Mei finds the magic that was in her all along." This book "...evokes both the realism of Mei's village and the magic in the art of making noodles."
