Lily LaMotte, brilliant author of the graphic novel Measuring Up, has written her debut picture book featuring a special Lunar New Year feast where young Chloe, her little brother, and their multiracial family celebrate this wonderful holiday and all its traditions. Perfect for fans of Bringing in the New Year by Grace Lin and I Am Golden by Eva Chen.

It's almost Lunar New Year, and Chloe can’t wait to celebrate! But first, Chloe and her family must prepare for the new year. They buy new shoes, lay out good-luck oranges in a bowl, decorate the red envelope, and make a crispy turnip cake. Everyone comes together to cook a fantastic feast, saving a plate for A-má, of course. Chloe enjoys the festive celebration and yummy food, but most of all, she loves spending time with her family.

Lily LaMotte and Michelle Lee have created a tender, warm, and uplifting holiday story about tradition and the importance of being with those you love.
