Roses Sing on New Snow by Paul Yee• Winner of the Ruth Schwartz Children’s Book Award
Maylin cooks delicious meals every day in her father’s restaurant, but it’s her lazy brothers who take all the credit. One day a contest is held to honor the visiting Governor of South China and Maylin’s brothers don’t hesitate to pass off her cooking as their own. But when neither the brothers nor the Governor himself can replicate Maylin’s wonderful dish, they all learn that there’s more to the art of good cooking than just using the right ingredients.

Thank you! While Maylin does the cooking for her family's Chinatown restaurant, her greedy father and two fat brothers take all the credit. They fail miserably; and even when Maylin is summoned and the governor works beside her in order to learn her secrets, the food he prepares is inferior to hers. Chan, a native of Hong Kong, makes a fine debut with his carefully researched watercolors, setting the story early in this century; evocative with period detail, they nicely convey the story's drama and humor. A satisfying variant on a theme that appears in many cultures. Picture book. There was a problem adding your email address.
