Ten-year-old Bandit Wong emigrates to America in 1947 from China and assimilates into the Chinese-American Shirley Temple Wong. Illustrations.
"A ten-year-old Chinese girl, Bandit Wong, emigrates to America (in 1947) and assimilates into the Chinese-American Shirley Temple Wong. After earning the friendship of the toughest girl in class, she is included in the playground stickball games and becomes a loyal fan of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Poignant but outrageously funny."--"School Library Journal." ALA Notable Children's Books of 1984; 1984 Notable Children's Trade Books in Social Studies.
