Reviews

*"The girls' differing personalities and sisterly affection continue to shine...Once again Lin's richly colored gouache artwork, based on 1950s children's textbook illustrations, gives reason enough to celebrate. Tw-inspiring fiction for beginning readers."--Kirkus, starred review
*"Lin continues to work wonders within the early reader format in twins' Ling and Ting's birthday-themed second outing...Despite working with a limited vocabulary, Lin infuses the twins' every interaction with personality and understated humor, while underscoring the girls' individuality."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
"These cheerful stories, with their flat, 50's-style illustrations, tell an inescapable truth: twins have to negotiate everything."--New York Times Book Review
"Simply written and engaging, the brief stories are well suited to beginning readers...An appealing addition to the Ling & Ting series."--Booklist
"While the book has a sweetly retro feel to it, Ling and Ting's adventures will appeal to contemporary audiences....Let's hope Lin continues to share with readers the further adventures of this dynamic duo."--The Horn Book
"Even though this is a short and simple early chapter book, the characters are fully developed and distinct, and children should be encouraged to infer the protagonists' traits. An excellent stand-alone purchase or addition for libraries already familiar with these endearing sisters."--School Library Journal
