About the Author
Richard Ho is Chinese, Jewish, and an author . . . in any order you wish! His previous books include The Lost Package, illustrated by Jessica Lanan, and Year of the Cat, illustrated by Jocelyn Li Langrand. He loves to craft stories about diverse cultures and the delightful ways they intertwine. He and his proudly multicultural family live in the melting pot of New Jersey.

Lynn Scurfield's work is defined by bright colors, fun textures, and strong emotions. In their spare time, Lynn enjoys knitting, watching tours of beautiful houses online, and going on hikes with Taro, her small (but barky) dog. Lynn resides in Toronto, Canada.

"This fun and beautifully illustrated look at a bicultural family's two different New Year traditions -- Lunar New Year and Rosh Hashanah -- stresses each one's universal messages of hope and renewal. A great book for encouraging young readers to embrace all of your family's heritages."

-- Common Sense Media

"A multicultural family celebrates a "shared year of double blessings" in this thoughtfully crafted picture book. Luminous ink illustrations portray the family, taking part in the celebrations, creating a visual melding of experiences." -- Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
