Nothing to read this summer (or winter, for my compatriots Downunder)?
The SCWBI has put together a whopping list of books that'll single-handedly break your library budget. The Ugly Dumpling's on it, so clearly it's a well curated list.
The fine booksellers at Powell's also agree:
Greg and Sarah of Funemployment Radio! were brave enough to have me on their show. We discussed puns, the Green Card lottery and driving on the wrong side of the road. Oh, and my book. The mischief starts around minute 23.
The Ugly Dumpling gets some props in this vegan cookbook roundup. Sure, it's not a cookbook, but this little dumpling is used to being mischaracterised. And, besides, no animal products are consumed in the narrative of this book.
"This is not a cookbook, but a children’s book that updates the familiar story of the Ugly Duckling and places it in a Chinese restaurant. The story of self-acceptance (and the acceptance of others who are different) is powerful, and this version and its illustrations are cute and engaging."
