Dim Sum Palace is a cute story about a child dreaming about going to the Dim Sum Palace. Like most young children she imagines a palace rather than a restaurant. The colorful pictures add much to the story.

There are strong echoes of Maurice Sendak's In The Night Kitchen in this tale about Liddy, who goes to sleep eager for tomorrow's trip to the Dim Sum Palace, and dreams of visiting a real palace and being made into a dumpling and served to the Empress. But Liddy avoids being eaten and joins the Empress' feast as a guest. When she wakes the next day, she finds that the real Dim Sum Palace isn't a palace at all, but the family meal is still even more delicious than in her dreams. The endpapers (graphite on paper) are tantalizing illustrations of dim sum: steamed pork bao, congee, radish cake, vegetarian dumpling.

A book to drool over.

This is a picture book description of a visit by aliens. The illustrations are pleasing aesthetically , and offer detail that will appeal to youngsters. The message is one of acceptance and kindness (although I find the last line about Europe ambiguous) For some reason, Mr. and Mrs. Li repeatedly say "y'all," which I found jarring and unnecessary. Fans of Space Case by Edward and James Marshall will find the story familiar.

Over the years, I've received a number of books through Tundra Books (Penguin Random House). One fact has been true, they will be beautiful, high quality, books. Dim Sum Palace by X. Fang is no exception. Young Liddy heads to bed with visions of her first visit to Dim Sum Palace. Dreams and reality become mixed in Liddy's mind and what follows is delightful. Will there be a Princess at the palace? Will there be delicious food? Join Liddy on her fantastic journey. Fang plays with scale in her attractive illustrations which blend well with the text. Overall, a great option for a multi-cultural classroom activity or a home library. Thanks to #ReadTundra and #LibraryThing for this review copy.… (lisätietoja)
