“In the age of malls and Wal-Marts, a Taiwanese girl’s blithesome errand feels like a joyful celebration of childhood. Young Shau-yu relishes in the simple pleasures of her walk…After a series of these small, gem-like moments, Shau-yu returns with the eggs her smiling father has requested, telling him, “Hello! I’ve had such a busy day.” Chen’s streamlined, blocky style keeps the focus on the human interactions and emotions, rather than the setting. With gentle humor, this timeless tale demonstrates how children largely live in – and appreciate – the moment.” – Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
