Book Description from the Front Cover Flap

Lo Long hates Chinese food...Chinese school...Chinese customs. Or does he? Enter a 3,000-year-old dragon named Behold. Sent to America from the boy's grandfather in China, Behold helps Lo to rediscover his cultural roots.

Written and illustrated by Benedict Norbert Wong, Lo & Behold is a warm, whimsical look at the generational culture clash faced by many Asian families today-on both sides of the Pacific. For Lo, as well as for other Asian children, will it be hamburger or traditional food? Pencil or brush? Crew-neck or mandarin collar?

Comments from Back Cover

"Today's younger generation usually relates better to books that illustrate our unique Asian American heritage. It is absolutely a delight to disover Ben Wong's colorful and imaginative tales. Ben is leading his tremendous storytelling talent to a genre of literature that has received far too little attention."
- Matin Yan
Master Chef, author, host of
Yan Can Cook

"Lo & Behold is a wonderfully entertaining book for readers of all ages. The illustrations grab your attention from beginning to end. And the storyline reinforces the value of family and importance of cultural identity."
- Susan Leong Lee, Ed.D.
Early Childhood Education Professor

"Children are captivated by the story! The theme is entirely suitable for a diverse school population. The humor, vocabulary, and plot are developmentally appropriate."
- Linda Barker
Elementary school Principal, San Francisco
