Mahjong All Day Long

From: The Seattle Post-Intelligencer (June 16, 2005)

"JieJie and her little brother, DiDi, hear the clicking of mahjong tiles all day long as their parents get together for games with opera-singing Uncle T.T. and Auntie Helen, who nibbles on watermelon seeds. You'll have to delve into an accompanying resource list to learn how to play, but this story is full of sensory details that make this close-knit Chinese family come alive. The illustrations are made with stains and underglazes on handmade porcelain plates, lending an odd, 2-D quality to pictures that are more interesting than beautiful."
