Kung Hei Fat Choy! Chinese New Year 2015

Chinese Fairy Tale Feasts (cover image)

February 19, 2015 marks the beginning on the Chinese New Year celebrations. This year is the year of the Goat or Sheep. Celebrate the Chinese New Year in your classroom or library with Paul Yee's Chinese Fairy Tale Feasts: A Literary Cookbook, illustrated by Shaoli Wang with recipes by Judy Chan (Tradewind Books, 2014).

In this enchanting collection of fairy tales including original stories and interpretations of Chinese folklore by master storyteller Paul Yee, a glorious procession of characters — peasants, ghosts, merchants, demons, villagers and kings — make their appearance. Each tale is followed by a simple recipe for a traditional Chinese dish to delight both readers and cooks!
