Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Ruby's cousin Flying Duck emigrates from China to live with her, Ruby decides the best thing about Flying Duck is that she is a great new friend. BUT the worst thing about Flying Duck is that now, no one speaks English at home. Plus, there's strange food on the table every night and only chopsticks to eat it with. And Flying Duck is deaf, and Ruby doesn't know any Chinese Sign Language. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; As if that weren't enough, this summer proves to be even more perilous as Ruby faces the dangers of swimming lessons, the joys of summer school, the difficulty of staying with a twelve-step program, the miracle needed to keep a beautiful stray dog that wanders into her life, and much more. Is it all too much for anyone — even the Empress of Everything — to handle?

Synopsis:

The inimitable heroine from "Ruby Lu, Brave and True" is back. When Ruby's cousin, Flying Duck, arrives from China to live with her, Ruby becomes her buddy. However, Flying Duck is deaf, and Ruby doesn't know Chinese Sign Language. Illustrations.
