Boy Dumplings
A Tasty Chinese Tale

by Ying Chang Compestine
illustrated by James Yamasaki

"Hilarity ensues as the ghost scrambles to assemble the ingredients to make the perfect batch of 'boy dumplings'. Could the boy possibly have an ulterior motive - such as the desire not to be eaten? A recipe for 'boy-free' dumplings rounds out this charming, whimsical fairy tale."
- Midwest Book Review

by Ying Chang Compestine
