"Will delight readers with its tale of good citizenship, lending a helping hand, responsibility building and friendship."
CM Magazine - September 18, 2009
"This book would be a good addition to a school or public library’s collection where it can contribute to the existing body of books that deal with cross-cultural friendships or relationships...Recommended."
PaperTigers - August 1, 2009
"Vivid characters and challenging plots create thought-provoking moral ambiguity for Yee’s readership...Wang’s shaded black and white line drawings and Yee’s chapter format create the feeling of a grownup book for newly independent readers, while younger children and their parents will appreciate Shu-Li and her friends as role models and will look forward to hearing more about them in this promising series."
