The illustrations portray the joy, strength, and beauty of the subject. The authors and artist have produced one of the all-time best children's books, and a must-have for boys.
Hoi is a young man from China who is brought to America and given a job building the railroads. As the days go by, he gets hungrier because he only gets a meal of rice two times a day. The boss won't let him eat rice while building the railroads (because "you cannot hold a bowl, chopsticks, and pick axe too"), so Hoi begans to eat pies and earns the nickname, "Pie-Biter."
As the years go by, Hoi finishes building the railroad, goes into business with his friend Spanish Louie, and finally goes back to China where he spreads his love of American pies with the Chinese.
