Praise

PRAISE FOR THE LEGEND OF AUNTIE PO

* “A timely and ultimately hopeful tale.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review.

* “A multifaceted addition to the historical graphic novel genre, this unique bildungsroman successfully presents many formidable topics with intentional and comprehensive grace.” —The Horn Book, starred review.

*”A moving read that skillfully explores themes of racism, privilege, and identity. A must for all libraries.” – School Library Journal, starred review.

“On the surface, this story is the birth of a folktale, but the author explores much deeper topics: grief, family, loyalty, racism, and self-discovery. … Watercolors are beautiful and illustrations are clean and simple, conveying a childlike air while tackling serious subject matter.” —Booklist

“Khor (The American Dream?) straddles myth and harsh realities via stunning digital pencil and hand-painted watercolor art that highlights cornerstones of Chinese culture. Much will resonate with diasporic readers, though any reader will find Mei’s journey cathartic.” —Publishers Weekly
