* "Luminous....Lin's storytelling is both clever and radiant. A warm and glowing modern myth."

Kirkus, starred review

"The gouache illustrations are excellent....Intriguing characters come alive."―Booklist

Lin successfully combines three distinctive and memorable elements: a fable that avoids seeming contrived, a vision of a mother and child living in cozy harmony, and a night kitchen of sendakian proportions.

Publishers Weekly

* This folkloric pourquoi tale effectively blends peaceful bedtime rhymes with the lure of irresistible snacking temptation―BCCB, starred review

"...wonderful as a bedtime book all year long."The New York Times

* The relationship between Little Star and her mother offers a message of empowerment and reassurance. Lin's loving homage to the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival is sure to become a bedtime favorite.―School Library Journal, starred review

"Lin's vibrant gouache paintings are a stellar fit for this story...this is a gentle, beautiful book for all."―BookPage

"In this bedtime read that sounds like a lullaby, a child longs to eat a mooncake she baked with her mom. Each night she secretly takes a bite, bringing about a new phase of the moon."―Parents Magazine

Praise for Dim Sum for Everyone!
"Like the pleasures of dim sum, this is a compact treat."
Booklist

"A delightful read-aloud"― Kirkus Reviews --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
