A little girl’s love of dim sum spills over into her dreams, taking her on a fantastical food filled-adventure in this beautifully illustrated homage to Maurice Sendak’s In the Night Kitchen

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…

Inspired by childhood memories of epic dim sum feasts, X. Fang’s glorious picture book is a delicious adventure with a loving helping of food, family and culture.
