* "An inspiring story of a young woman crossing a boundary, an informative glimpse into a career, and a study in perseverance." -- School Library Journal, starred review

* "Barasch not only warmly portrays her human cast, but also presents mouthwatering galleries of sushi and of the varieties of seafood from which it is made." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"From the lively double-page spread of the fish market to the small, delicious pictures of the many kinds of sushi Hiromi learns to make, this book celebrates the riches of cultural diversity." -- Booklist

"Hiromi's narration conveys her enthusiasm, and the text nicely foreshadows (with his love of New York, so different from Tokyo) her dad's willingness to break tradition. The muted ink-and-watercolor illustrations are spare but expressive." -- The Horn Book

"[A] jaunty book about continuity and change. . . . Delicate watercolors show family history, personal accomplishment and tiny fish delicacies." -- San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
