Sam and the Lucky Money
By American Bookseller
(Pick of the Lists, American Bookseller Magazine) The subtle blending of cultures in both the illustrations and text engross the reader in the dilemma of a young Chinese-American boy faced with spending his New Year’s gift money. On a shopping spree with his mother, he discovers that the ultimate value is giving. The artists’ vibrant watercolors embellish this story, which reaches across ethnic boundaries to reaffirm a universal truth.
