I just loved American Born Chinese so I was a little disappointed in this earlier work. It's a wacky story, with magic realism and sci-fi elements. I mean - really - animal crackers come alive. Things are plugged into noses. It's a bit odd. And I really hated that the smart girl goes for the dumb guy. But that's my own neurosis.
I like Yang's illustration style, and I identify with his general vibe and voice. And I LOVED the special features at the end. Definitely the work of a less mature creator than the guy who did American Born Chinese. But that makes sense.
