"★ ""Rich in folklore, comedy, and color, a riotous and pleasurable treat.""--Kirkus Reviews, starred"


"★ ""Rich in folklore, comedy, and color, a riotous and pleasurable treat.""--Kirkus Reviews, starred Kim's story is absolutely enchanting, but her stupendously vivacious illustrations prove even more memorable. Amplifying details immediately stand out from the first pages: the rice maker found in virtually every Asian American home, the well-used kitchen towel hanging slightly askew, the melding of Western/Korean architectural aesthetics. Kim imbues every scene with infectious energy, inviting readers to join in the clever challenges to bring the family safely back together. --Terry Hong, Shelf Awareness ""A lovely and lively sequel and perfect companion to Kim’s first inventive and immersive expedition traversing two cultures""--Booklist ""This very non-apologetic bilingual nature of the stories is healing to read.""--AsianLitforKids"
