Praise

Poignant but not treacly, CROUCHING TIGER deals with an immigrant child’s conflicting emotions toward a grandparent from the old country…Nascimbene’s delicate ink and watercolor illustrations are exquisite.
—The New York Times

The beauty Nascimbene discovers in Ming Da’s suburban world-the leaves that fall around Ming Da as he practices, parade-goers scattered like confetti, the stars that accompany Ming Da and Grandpa on the way home-echoes the beauty Ming Da eventually finds in Grandpa’s tai chi poses. Readers will warm to the duo’s growing friendship and the gifts that come as Ming Da allows himself to enter Grandpa’s world.
