Roses Sing on New Snow

Roses Sing on New Snow

by Paul Yee Illustrated by Harvey Chan

Maylin cooks delicious meals every day in her father's restaurant, but her lazy brothers take all the credit. One day a contest is held to honor the visiting governor of South China, and Maylin's brothers decide to pass off her cooking as their own. But when neither they nor the governor can replicate Maylin's wonderful dish, they all learn that there's more to the art of good cooking than the right ingredients.

Paul Yee's charming text and Harvey Chan's dramatic watercolors transport the reader to another time and culture in this engaging tale.
