OVERVIEW

"This bright and bubbly early reader graphic novel, based on debut creator Yu’s own immigration story, validates the sometimes overwhelming nature of learning an unfamiliar language as a child in a new country." —Publishers Weekly
 

Being the new kid in school is scary enough. But imagine what it would be like if you were the new kid in a new school, in a new country. That’s exactly the situation Mei Yu finds herself in when her family moves from China to Canada. As she navigates her new school, she discovers a unique way to learn English and makes a new friend along the way in this heartwarming story based on the author's own experiences.
 
PRAISE

“Yu’s fictionalized biographical immigration story highlights perseverance and creative problem solving. The ‘Note to Readers,’ author’s note, and bonus story are fantastic additions . . . Highly recommended.”—School Library Journal STARRED Review

"This bright and bubbly early reader graphic novel, based on debut creator Yu’s own immigration story, validates the sometimes overwhelming nature of learning an unfamiliar language as a child in a new country." —Publishers Weekly

“Yu’s manga-style art is full of silly and dramatic flourishes that perfectly capture the overwhelming experience of culture shock. Mei uses creative thinking and her love of art to find her way, and readers will rejoice at the winsome hero’s triumphs. Charming, funny, and full of heart.”—Kirkus
