Reviews

"In this intimate bilingual tale bridging two cultures, Tran and Phong ... write and paint from the heart." -- Reviewer "Publishers Weekly"
"Phong's richly colored, double-page acrylic paintings capture both the child's dislocation in the strange crowds and the contrast between the two worlds she knows." -- Reviewer "Booklist"
"Phong's market and street scenes put readers into authentic settings. She captures Saigon's street life perfectly with her portrayal of a boy carrying a steaming bowl of noodles across a street while traffic dances around him." -- Reviewer "The Sacramento Bee"
