Reviewed by Kristie I. for Readers Favorite Grace Lin's latest installment of Pacy's adventures in her novel, "Dumpling Days" is an enjoyable read for older children/pre-teens. The story begins with Pacy wearing matching dresses with her sisters Lissy and Ki-Ki aboard an airplane heading to Taiwan for 28 days. The girls are not thrilled by the trip, but they are reminded by their dad that "Traveling is always important - it opens your mind. You take something with you, you leave something behind, and you are forever changed. That is a good trip." Each and every reader of this novel will be on this trip to Taiwan and be a part of the family throughout this novel and will be able to learn numerous things as a result. The family is celebrating the girls' grandmother's 60th birthday, but the trip turns out to be so much more than a birthday party. A new culture is learned, the girls meet new relatives, try new foods and live a different kind of life and at the end, Taiwan feels as much like home as New Hartford, New York, does. Lin shares and teaches so much Taiwan in this novel based upon her own experiences she has had while visiting there. The young reader will enjoy this story, but will be becoming so culturally aware at the same time. Pacy is an enjoyable and entertaining character to read about and will be much loved by the reader. The little illustrations throughout the book are a great addition to the story and make it "child-friendly" along with the language and Lin's style of writing. I highly recommend this entertaining and educational novel for older children.

Review title: Summer Surprise. This was a delightful novel. It is great for encouraging readers to enjoy their culture and heritage and the importance of exploring your family history. Grace Lin did a great job of drawing readers in to the world of Pacy as she went to her parents' homeland and learned many wonderful lessons. With a well-developed storyline and characters readers are sure to be fascinated by Pacy's tale of her summer adventure.

The best book ever! I read it 5 times. It takes you on you're own adventure to Taiwan. It has very good description on food. I dont even like seafood but it makes it sound good. I have almost have read all her books. Which one is better Year of the Rat or Dumpling Days.

I am Taiwanese, and where she comes from must be very rich. Where I coe from, not very many people had enough to eat. It seems that there are mostly pros in here and not enough cons. And when there is somethingnbad, its only minor or too exaggerated. This book had correct gramer and everything, the plot just boed me to death.

This book has amazing descriptions of food. They were so detailed that when she talked about dumplings, we had some for dinner. She made them sound delicious!
