"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

Emma "The second title in the Asian Hall of Fame series features returning characters Emma and Ethan, who observe a fireworks display for a Chinese festival. Their peppy animal friend, a red panda named Dao You, whisks them into the past to learn about alchemists and early gunpowder, followed by an overview of how fireworks began to be used in celebrations. Amara and Chin pack as much STEM information into Dao You's history lesson as there is metallic powder in pyrotechnic stars... Calle's bright cartoons infuse energy and enthusiasm into each spread."
