A whimsical story about being different, and the power of love.--Wendy Orr,
author of Nim's Island and The Princess and Her Panther It's not easy being the
ugliest dumpling in a dim sum restaurant. Uneaten and ignored, the ugly dumpling
is down in the dumps. But when an encouraging cockroach sees the dumpling's
inner beauty, this unlikely duo embarks on an eye-opening adventure, leading the
ugly dumpling to discover its true identity and realize that being different is
beautiful after all.
A modern fairytale retelling with a timeless moral: There's a little ugly
dumpling in all of us.
