This is a chapter book for young readers but I picked it up because I like the author and her short stories.
It tells an interesting little story of a young girl visiting her grandmother in Taiwan and how she learns to make dumplings and discovers colorful beetles in the basement.
It is simple but sweet and informative about some customs.

S. Michele Chen lives in Southern California but visits her family in Taiwan frequently because the bugs no longer scare her (okay, maybe a little bit). She has published numerous crime fiction short stories and a novella under a secret identity. This is her first children’s book and hopefully not her last.
