Reviews

"...this cleanly written and affectingly illustrated book has resonances well beyond the simple story line."
-- Sarah Ellis, The Georgia Straight

"...sumptuously illlustrated, the inspirational story tells of the way an immigrant boy from China is helped by a child ghost to find courage to make a new life in North America...."
-- The Vancouver Sun
