A day in Chinatown takes an unexpected turn when a bored little girl makes a connection with her grandpa.

May isn''t having fun on her trip through Chinatown with her grandfather. Gong Gong doesn''t speak much English, and May can''t understand Chinese. She''s hungry, and bored with Gong Gong''s errands. Plus, it seems like Gong Gong''s friends are making fun of her! But just when May can’t take any more, Gong Gong surprises her with a gift that reveals he’s been paying more attention than she thought.

A glossary at the end of the book features translations of the Chinese words from the story into Chinese characters and English.
