The Story of Noodles

A Picture Book by

"Compestine's almost tongue-in-cheek tale is a nearly unbeatable combination of slapstick humor, fast pace, and food." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Back from The Story of Chopsticks, the Kang brothers are in for another culinary misadventure." - Publishers Weekly

The village always expects Mama's famous dumplings to win the annual cooking contest. However, this year the Kang brothers play with the dough, and soon, long strips fly everywhere.

With no time left, the family can bring only the strings of boiled flour. Will the new dish wow the judges or will the three boys find themselves in hot water?

This series, recounting how the creative Kang brothers discovered four of China's famed inventions, is redesigned to feature new bilingual simplified Chinese translations.
