"I really enjoyed reading about the history of ramen, and I suspect that whether your kids are already fans of these curly noodles in their various forms or not, this is a book that will definitely tempt their taste buds.... The Discovery of Ramen is also a wonderful and tasty way to introduce young readers to Japanese history and culture." -- Randomly Reading

"Take some ramen, add two kids and a talking red panda, mix in some time travel and super cute art and you have the recipe for a very tasty book." -- Dan Goodsell, author of Krazy Kids Food

"Now I'm hungry for noodles! My kids loved the book immediately when they saw it. My 8 year old wanted to read it on her own."-- Kaye Puhlmann, co-founder, Storybird
