产品描述

Long ago in China, a ghost can’t wait to sink his teeth into his next meal — a plump boy!
The child will need to think fast if he doesn’t want to turn into a midnight snack. What will happen when the
ghost decides to make the mouthwatering “Boy Dumplings” recipe?
Every fall, the Ghosts Festival is like the Chinese Halloween: people leave offerings of food at night for hungry
ghosts. Boy Dumplings plays with this cultural tradition and adds a humorous twist. Inspired by her son who
enjoyed making dumplings, author Compestine adds a clever young protagonist who can befuddle any spirit! Plus
Yamasaki’s colorful art mines comedy from seemingly scary circumstances.
The San Francisco Chronicle wrote, “Exciting storytelling and Chinese culinary traditions create a delicious book
for young readers.” Kirkus Reviews called Boy Dumplings “a classic trickster tale, developing both characters and
premise with humor.”
