The Runaway Rice Cake

The Runaway Rice Cake

(2001)
A Picture Book by

 
It's the Chinese New Year, and the Chang Family has only enough rice flour to make one nian-gao, a special New Year's rice cake, for the entire family to eat. But this delicious little nian-gao has other ideas. "Ai yo! I don't think so!" it cries, coming to life and escaping.
Ming, Cong, little Da and their parents chase the nian-gao all over the village until it runs into a hungry, old woman and sends her tumbling to the ground. Though Da is a small boy, his heart is big enough to share the treat with her, even though that leaves Da's family with nothing to eat for their own celebration. But the Changs' generosity doesn't go unnoticed. When they return home, they find the Kitchen God has left a wonderful surprise for them.
Ying Chang Compestine's heartwarming story conveys an important and poignant message about sharing and compassion. Tungwai Chau's soft and evocative illustrations complete this tender holiday story.
