Book Description from Back CoverJenny's favorite uncle, Peter, is getting married, and everyone is happy happy-everyone, that is, except Jenny. While her family runs about getting ready for the traditional Chinese wedding-preparing for the tea ceremony, exchanging good-luck money called hungbau, helping the bride with her many dresses-Jenny is crying on the inside. How is she supposed to still be Uncle Peter's number-one girl, with her new aunt Stella around? Maybe if she can stop the day's events from happening, he won't get married at all. . . .
Mischievous kids will love following Lenore Look and Yumi Heo's feisty heroine from Henry's First-Moon Birthday in this charming story that also illuminates the many traditions of the Chinese wedding.
Background on Lenore Look and Yumi HeoLenore Look is the author of Love as Strong as Ginger, a Booklist Editors' Choice of 1999, which the New York Times praised as "a loving anecdotal tale." Unlike her heroine, Jenny, Ms. Look doesn't like being in charge of domestic details and is working on passing her few helpful genes on to her two daughters. A graduate of Princeton University, she lives in Randolph, New Jersey, with her husband and children.
Yumi Heo was born in Korea and has lived in the United States since 1989. Among her many titles is the New York Times Best Illustrated Book The Lonely Lioness and the Ostrich Chicks, by Verna Aardema, and So Say the Little Monkeys, by Nancy Van Laan. She lives in White Plains, New York, with her husband, Steven, and their two children, Auden and Sara Jane.
