Fortune Cookie Fortunes

by Grace Lin

Published by Alfred A. Knopf, 2004

Ages 5 - 8

A young girl is fascinated by the fortunes in the cookie each member of her family receives at a Chinese restaurant. In the coming days, she notices how every fortune has a way of coming true for the person who received it. The message in her own cookie suggested that she has an original way of seeing the world, and she realizes that this, too, is true--she interprets the world around her through fortune cookies!. Grace Lin has created another appealing picture book about a contemporary Chinese American child and family, with bright, dynamic illustrations in pen-and-ink and watercolor echoing the lively, lighthearted spirit of the story.
