The Runaway Rice Cake
Author: Ying Chang Compestine
Illustrator: Chau Tungwai
In a manner reminiscent of the gingerbread man, the Chang family’s Chinese New Year celebrations are halted when their rice cake comes to life and escapes. When the ensuing chase bumps into a starving elderly woman, the family (and rice cake!) agree that she should have the cake. But will the family go hungry? Read the story to find out its heart-warming ending.
