Reviews

"Yu's fictionalized biographical immigration story highlights perseverance and creative problem solving. The 'Note to Readers, ' author's note, and bonus story are fantastic additions . . . Highly recommended."--School Library Journal STARRED Review

"This bright and bubbly early reader graphic novel, based on debut creator Yu's own immigration story, validates the sometimes overwhelming nature of learning an unfamiliar language as a child in a new country." --Publishers Weekly

"Yu's manga-style art is full of silly and dramatic flourishes that perfectly capture the overwhelming experience of culture shock. Mei uses creative thinking and her love of art to find her way, and readers will rejoice at the winsome hero's triumphs. Charming, funny, and full of heart."--Kirkus
