Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

I see take-out
tekka maki,

kappa maki
packed to go.

Temaki-style hand roll
with uni urchin roe.

Miso in my sippy cup;

tofu in my bowl:

Crab and avocado
     fill my California roll.

I'll take yellowtail hamachi

and a red maguro slice.

Big, BIG futomaki

has so many grains of rice!

Ikura, squishy salmon roe
like dabby dots of jelly,

    salty on my lips
and yummy in my belly!

    Egg tamago and
          shrimp ebi
dipped in soy sauce
           (not a lot).

Pink pickled ginger
    cools my tongue,
      hot, hot, HOT!

Tobiko, flying fishy roe
           flying from Japan.
