Liddy is too excited to sleep!

Tomorrow she's going to the Dim Sum Palace with her family, so when a tempting smell wafts into her bedroom, she has no choice but to follow it... to a real palace!

There are dumplings, baos, buns and more tasty treats than one girl can possibly eat. But before Liddy can take a bite, she slips and falls into a bowl of dumpling filling. The chefs are so busy making dim sum, they don't notice they've prepared a most unusual dish for the Empress - a Liddy dumpling!

Worst of all, she looks good enough to eat...

«Readers will find Liddy both amusing and endearing simultaneously. Many pages feature kitchen scenes where the sight and 'smell' of the food will leave your mouth watering as you read... A fun and memorable book»

Just Imagine

«A sumptuous homage to Maurice Sendak's In the Night Kitchen»

The New York Times

«Fang's delightful story about a nighttime kitchen adventure has shades of Maurice Sendak . . . but Liddy is a force unto herself. Full of finelined crosshatching and a saturated color palette, Fang's artwork is deliciously off-kilter, with flattened and blocky figure designs and a fanciful sense of scale underscoring the charming imagination of Liddy's dream. Food-loving kids eagerly anticipating a special treat will easily recognize Liddy's wide-eyed excitement - and probably end up asking for a snack»
