One of FOLD Kids Book of the Month Picks (January Picture Book)
One of CCBC’s Best Books for Kids and Teens, Fall 2021 — Starred Pick

PRAISE FOR Ten Little Dumplings:

“Stepping out of the shadows: a gentle, persuasive #ownvoices take on a hitherto-untold perspective.” —STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews

“A sincere and beautiful story for all ages, and one that can gently introduce a serious discussion topic of rank and gender for older readers.” —STARRED REVIEW, School Library Journal

“Infused not with grievance but with redemptive joy, this is a book to cheer the heart of any child who’s ever felt overshadowed by a dazzling sibling — or by 10 of them.” —Wall Street Journal

“Fan has created a heroine who is quiet and observant, seemingly willing to conform, but all the time building up her own strength and conviction . . . Do not miss this book!” —Imaginary Elevators

“This book beautifully uses the frame of a traditional tale to give little sister her voice back.” —the Globe and Mail

“The book’s final image of the grown-up daughter sitting with her own child, also a daughter, evokes a positive representation of female lineage and empowerment.” —CM Magazine

“In cultures that prized sons, [Fan] wonders, ‘who is left out of the stories we tell and why?'” —World

“[A] heartwarming and insightful tale of family, identity, and the unique challenges faced by cultural mores.” —Canadian Cookbooks
