Every Friday Louie sees the hustle and bustle behind the scenes at his grandpa's Chinese restaurant. The chef's hands fly as he chops vegetables, the delivery boy zips in for a pickup, and the waiters holler out order after order. Then it's time to eat. Grandpa offers Louie a whole fish and crabs. "No, thank you, Grandpa!" But the dumplings, egg rolls, and chow mein sure look good. No trip to the Chinese restaurant is complete without a fortune cookie: "Happy food, happy belly,happy smile."

Caldecott Honor-winner Rachel Isadora brings a dynamic restaurant to life with beautiful cut-paper collages reminiscent of Eric Carle and Ezra Jack Keats.

My daughter is turning two in December and it's usually very difficult to get her to sit and read with me but last night, she sat through the whole thing and enjoyed looking at the pictures. The book wasn't too long or too short. I am Korean and she's half Korean so I've been trying to read books to her about different cultures and she enjoyed this one a lot!
