Booklist (September 1, 2005 (Vol. 102, No. 1))
Gr. 1-3. This intergenerational, multicultural, picture book covers many bases. Mike's Korean grandmother is still adjusting to her move to the U.S. While Mike helps her learn English, she helps the family, which owns a food cart, beat stiff competition. The family once did a good business serving pizza, bagels, and hot dogs on a busy corner, but now two other carts serving similar fare have moved in. Mike's idea--to serve delicious Korean specialties that only Grandma knows how to make--saves the business and also helps Grandma feel at home. Simple, colorful illustrations complement a straightforward text. A note of humor is introduced as Grandma peeks slyly over a dumpling she holds to her mouth to mimic a smile--a joke she says Mike's father loved when he was young. Korean food terms are sprinkled throughout the text, and back matter includes definitions, pictures, and the words written in Korean.
