Apple Pie Fourth of July by Janet S. Wong, Margaret
No one wants Chinese food on the Fourth of July, I say. We're in apple-pie
America, and my parents are cooking chow mein! . . .
They just don't
get it. Americans do not eat Chinese food on the Fourth of July. Right?
Shocked that her parents are cooking Chinese food to sell in the family
store on this all-American holiday, a feisty Chinese-American girl
tries to tell her mother and father how things really are. But as
the parade passes by and fireworks light the sky, she learns a lesson
of her own.
This award-winning author-illustrator team returns with a lighthearted
look at the very American experience of mixed cultures.
