Terrific Tuesday

Goldy Luck and the Three Pandas by Natasha Yim, illustrated by Grace Zong is a cheerful Chinese-American version of the Three Bears.  This story starts out in a traditional way, but the ending has a new twist that involves friendship.
The illustrations were done in acrylic on paper.  They are bright and light-hearted showing good expression on the characters and lots of little Chinese tidbits in the background pictures.
There is an author's note on the Chinese New Year, Chinese Zodiac and a Turnip Cake recipe.
