B. The Discovery of Ramen gets Rated!
The "Ramen Rater" Hans Lienesch has reviewed instant ramen for 15 years. This makes him America's resident expert.

Now the one and only Ramen Rater has given our new book The Discovery of Ramen a thumbs up!

"I like how it goes on a whimsical trip through time (and space) teaching about the history of noodles all the way from early China. They also touch on instant noodles and how Momofuku Ando originally was from Taiwan which I found a realistic touch."

He even made an "unboxing" video! Thanks Hans :)

C. San Francisco events
Locke Author Oliver Chin autographs the Tales from the Chinese Zodiac series and other Immedium storybooks at the festive Kimochi Silver Bells in San Francisco, CA.

Come on Saturday, 12/16, at St. Mary's Cathedral (1111 Gough Street). Oliver signs at the Little Buddha Baby booth.

The Discovery of Ramen
by Phil Amara, Oliver Chin
Illustrated by Juan Calle

"Travel across the world and back in time with Emma and Ethan as they learn all about the history and tradition of ramen from Dao, an adorable red panda who just happens to be an expert on Asian culture, cuisine, and, of course, all things ramen. Amusing anime-style illustrations show the magical, wide-eyed trio flying over China and Japan, tiptoeing past Taiwan, and floating into outer space on a fun, informative, and savory adventure."
- Foreword magazine - - - The Discovery of Ramen
